How to add HP drivers to GNU/Linux

Most GNU/Linux distributions will come with a version of HP's GNU/Linux printer driver and software (HPLIP). This is not always updated by the package maintainer for every distro. To acquire the latest version, go to http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html and select Download HPLIP. This will take you to another page with drop-down menus for isolating the version of HPLIP you need or if it can be updated by your distribution maintainer. If you prefer to skip the wizard and just install the latest version, click on Download from the left side bar.

This will download a .run file which will be a distribution independent installer. This page will have more information about installing HPLIP and what packages you will need to install it by hand.

*NOTE* It is recommended to first see if you can get one that has been built by your distribution.
