What operating systems (and specific Linux distros) does HPLIP Support?


HPLIP is Linux-based software and works succesfully across a wide breadth of Linux distributions (distros). It does not work on Windows or other non-Linux operating systems.  There have been reports by some advanced users having had success in the modification of HPLIP for use on some Unix systems.  However, those modifications are unsupported and undocumented by Hewlett-Packard and therefore we have no information on how to use HPLIP on Unix.

While we do not formally test HPLIP on all of the hundreds of distros in the marketplace today, based on the feedback from our customers we are confident that HPLIP will work satisfactorily on nearly any Linux distro. We do test the latest HPLIP release with the following major distros:

  • Fedora
  • Linux Mint
  • openSUSE
  • Ubuntu
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED)

(Our testing is done with the latest publicly available version of each of the above distros).
