Hi James

Should be fully supported.  See

http://www.openprinting.org/printer/HP/HP-PhotoSmart_C4200

and

http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/photosmart/photosmart_c4200_series.html

There is no special 'drivers' for most HP printers that are not
installed with the HPLIP package.  When I upgraded to 10.04 (with a
fresh install) my HP printer was automatically detected on first boot.
I can only suggest that you remove the HPLIP package, reinstall it, then
reboot with the printer connected and switched on.  If it does not
install, I suggest you check the printer connections.
