I assume you mean DeskJet 5551? According to, it
perfectly[URL] - and their info is usually accurate.

DId you try going to System-Administration-Printing and selecting your
printer there? If it doesn't automatically suggest a dirver, choose

To run Synaptic, go to System-Administration-Synpatic Package manager.
