Please go to this site for the Linux Drivers:
After you have downloaded and installed the required drivers for your printer,
read thru the FAQ as there are some manual configuration steps that must be
done for ubuntu/kubuntu.. Also you can get excellent tech support via there
email support option. But be patient as it is a little slow.. I just do not
understand why they have not submitted there drivers to the CUPS project as HP
Hope this helps.
