Instructions for using the Automatic Installer.

Manual Install

While this is the more traditional method to download and install HPLIP, it requires a degree of knowledge that users new to Linux may find more difficult than they would prefer. It requires that you manually install dependencies and run build and install commands in a console/terminal.

To use it, follow the directions at our Manual Installation Instructions page.
