Hi. I'm new here. Just installed Peppermint, It's great. Also new to Linux in general. Question, when I try and set up my printer- HP Photosmart C3150- through http://localhost:631/, it does see my printer, however when I am prompted to make a selection for the driver, I do not see my model number under the selection of choices. I do get the printer set up using another models driver, and it does print, however it keeps ejecting a second page and then hangs up for a few minutes. Can you please let me know what I need to do to get this right? I take it I need to get my hands on a driver directly from HP? Thanks for your help.

I installed hplip, and some other HP stuff from Synaptic, and installed mine through that. I didn't even fool with localhost.631. The driver was in one of the packages in the stuff in synaptic, so it was dead easy.

Usually, I choose the closest lower number in the file. That runs perfectly.

This easy way to connect a printer to Linux is the main reason why I prefer HP printers.
