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.

How can I get HPLIP?

Answer: 

Many Linux distributions regularly integrate HPLIP into their latest software releases, so you may already have HPLIP available on your Linux PC. HP does not distribute HPLIP with printers, so if your Linux distro has not included it in the Linux release that you have – or if you need an updated version to say, support a newer printer - you can also download it for free at http://hplipopensource.com
