Then follow this guide: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/install/index.html
if a plugin is missing, then run (requires that your internet connection is working and that the hplib mirror is online):
sudo hp-plugin -g

hp-setup” from the terminal when the computer has restarted.
DONE – gotta love Ubuntu – feel free to comment 🙂
