[lubuntu-users] lubuntu and printers

I originally built HPLIP from source.
When I executed the System Tools/Software Updater menu in Lubuntu 14,
one of the updates was HPLIP, and the update crashed.
It looked to me like it was recompiling the source.
Does this mean that I should remove my HPLIP
and then select it from the Ubuntu repository to get object version?
