Congrats on the upgrade.
Unfortunately for you, my experience with an "All-In-One" style
printer was with an HP Photosmart C7280 on Intrepid and it was
*amazingly easy* through USB as well as wired and wirelessly
However, I can say the one thing I'd try first in your shoes would be
to google "your_printer_model_number ubuntu" and see what other
peoples' experience of using that printer on ubuntu have been. If
there's a way to get it to work, someone out there has probably done
it and written about it.
Best of luck!
