I forgot something: Before you start remove any printers you have setup
in System Settings.

5) After installation unplug the printer and plug it in again.

hp-check -r

to check for any errors and to see if it finds a(ny) printer(s) under

6) If everything looks OK run:


to set up the printer.

BTW: No warranty. This may break your printing entirely ;-)
