Hi @vectra246 , when you installed the OS you would have been automatically added to the "sudo" group, so to give an admin command just use sudo in front of the command and then when it asks, enter your password:

Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/sbin/ccpdadmin -p LBP5050 -o /dev/usb/lp0

HP! Make sure the model is approx. 6 months old first to allow for driver compatibility.

Hplip is already installed, no need to install it again.
