What is HPLIP?

Answer: 

Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging & Printing (HPLIP) is an HP-developed open-source Linux solution for printing, scanning, and faxing with HP inkjet and LaserJet printers. It consists of several distinct but interconnected pieces of software and is available as either a single compressed (tar) file or as a single auto-install (run) file. As installed, HPLIP’s primary elements are device drivers, setup and installation utilities, and a device manager (aka: a toolbox) which provides access to maintenance tools, supplies levels, and status information.
