Chaps, I cannot get this printer/scanner to work in P4. It works in Ubuntu 13.10 and Crunchbang Waldorf i686 so I know there are linux drivers out there for this all-in-one. Apparently, P4 is Ubuntu based so if the printer/scanner works effortlessly in Ubuntu, then why is it an ordeal for me in P4?

Since this is an HP printer, see this post:
That should help get you going.

Yup, your printer has been supported by hplip since version 3.11.7 .. Peppermint 4 has version 3.13.3

So make sure your system is fully updated, then open a terminal and run:
sudo apt-get install hplip hplip-gui

Then use the:-

menu > Preferences > HPLIP Toolbox

menu item to configure the printer.

You're most welcome :)

I've moved his topic from the "General Discussion" forum, as it's a better fit here and may assist future searchers find the solution.

I've also taken the liberty of marking it (SOLVED) .. if you don't consider it solved, either remove the "(SOLVED)" from the subject line of the FIRST posting in this topic, or let me (or any other moderator) know, and we'll unmark it for you :)

PM also sent to the OP, linking to this new location.
