I’ve got old printer: HP Deskjet 930c. Following steps were necessary to use it with my Ubuntu 14.04:
- Printer: start + connect it via USB
- download HP drivers bundle called: HP Linux Imaging and Printing from: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/gethplip.html
- install bundle via (answering couple yes/overwrite questions):
chmod +x hplip-3.14.10.run && ./hplip-3.14.10.run
You should see your new printer afterwards.
