    HP drivers in Ubuntu

    Some off-the-shelf HP printers won't work in Ubuntu, until proprietary drivers are installed.

    The quickest way I found is to use the existing hp-setup tool, provided in Ubuntu distributions. Just plug your printer in, and run:

    $ sudo hp-setup

    Couple of answers later (d for download and y for yes, I agree to the license terms), your printer is ready. Painless and quick.

    As always, remember that if you are behind a proxy, you need to sort it out first (see several entries below regarding this).
