Hello!

Welcome to Linux Lite.

Have you tried installing HPLIP? It is written by HP to provide Linux support for a wide variety of HP printers.

You can get it here: http://www.http://hplipopensource.com.

If you're running a 1.X.X of LL, your OS is 'Ubuntu 12.04'.

If you follow the installation instructions on their Web site, that SHOULD solve your problem...

Hello!

You're welcome. I'd rate HP's Linux printer support as nothing less than excellent...
