HPLIP worked for me: HP Photosmart 7520.
But I had trouble building it on Dell 8200 with only 512 MB RAM.
I had to close all other processes.
The last automatic software update from Ubuntu crashed during build.

Hi There,

Recently I've only used HP printers. It is very easy to use them as long as you have the package hplip and all its dependencies installed.

I've been spoilt by hplip so I'm clueless about installing other printers. In lubuntu, under swift menu -> System tools there is a "Printers" option for managing printers. Has anyone used this? What kind of results did you get?

I'm asking because someone who got a Lubuntu PC from Contact's PC refurbishment project is interested in using her new printer (no other details available yet).
