All information provided is believed to be accurate but is not guaranteed.

Notes:

1 Network support indicates built-in ethernet and/or wireless networking. Alternatively, many devices may be operated on the network using an external JetDirect print server. Not all network configurations are supported. Please refer to the HPLIP FAQs for more information.

2 USB mass storage only. You may mount the photocard as a storage drive over USB only. Refer to your distribution's documentation for setup and usage instructions.

3 Scan supported means that PC initiated scan using a SANE compatible software application is supported over parallel, USB, or network (depending on I/O connection). Information on digital sending products is covered in note 9, below.

4 Photo supported means that the printer's photo card slots are readable using either USB mass storage (USB only) or hp-unload (USB, parallel or network).

5 Fax supported means that PC initiated fax send is supported using hp-sendfax, once an appropriate CUPS fax queue is set up. Fax support varies on Linux distributions, based on the availability of python-dbus version 0.80 or greater (versions before 0.80 will not work with HPLIP). Click on the model name of each printer to get more detailed information.

6 Copy supported means that PC initiated copying is supported using hp-makecopies.

7 "Services and status" means that ink/toner levels, error reporting, and services such as alignment, and color calibration are available (via the HP Device Manager aka Toolbox).

8 ("Required") A downloadable driver plug-in is required for printing support. ("Optional") A downloadable driver plug-in is optional for printing support and may increase the speed, quality, or other aspect of printed output. ("No" or "None") A driver plug-in is not required nor available. Driver plug-ins are released under a proprietary (non-open) license and are not part of the HPLIP tarball release. For more information, please refer to this KB article

9 Device supports digital sending, not standard scanning protocols. See this KB article for more info.

10 Feature support depends on the specific Linux distribution being used.

11 For a definition of Support Levels, please refer to this KB article.

12 For more information, please refer to this KB article.

13 The "Summary of Available Features in Various Linux Distributions" table lists available features for distros that are supported by the HPLIP automatic tarball installer. Distros that are not listed will require a manual install procedure (See this page for more information).

14"Qt3" and "Qt4" refer to the supported UI toolkit. If "Qt3" is indicated, then the distro supports a GUI interface using the Qt3 UI toolkit. The Qt4 toolkit is not supported for the distro in this case. If "Qt4" is indicated, then the distro supports a GUI interface using the Qt4 UI toolkit. In this case, the Qt3 UI toolkit may also be available and used if desired. The appropriate UI toolkit will be automatically installed by the HPLIP installer.

15"Recommended" means that the printer is fully supported in HPLIP and is recommended for use on your Linux system. For information of what "fully supported" means, see this KB article.
