Maybe I got the model wrong, but the answer is still the same. HPLIP
should provide all you need. See
So if you cannot print, then something else is wrong.
First of all, please tell us which version of Ubuntu you use.
Make sure the printer is switched on and connected, then do File > Print
on this email. Is it listed in the Print Dialogue?
When you click Print, do you get a notification message "HPLIP Device
Status" giving you a print job number? Did it print?
If you go Applications > Accessories > Manage Print Jobs, is the print
job listed? What is its Status?
Repeat the above with the Printer switched off.
Let us know the results of these tests.
