First, I would totally delete the printer from your system, unplug it
from the computer and totally wipe it clean as in the system recognized
or sees NO printer at all when it's booted.
Turn off printer, plug in to computer, make sure it's on and then turn
on the computer. Your computer should pick it up and install it, esp
being HP printer and working with linux all the time. Mine is detected
all by itself and never have to do anything.
If your computer isn't detected on it's own by itself (how is it
connected btw, usb cable?), try like someone else said,
system-config-printer and see if that works.
I installed system-config-printer at the next boot and I found the
printer already installed inside it without any manual operation. I
could even print a test page.
Then I uninstalled system-config-printer, rebooted again, and I could
still see the printer and print from various applications.
I have no idea what changed between these boots but now I can use my
printer :) Doh!
Thanks for your support guys!
