So I just had my friend install Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick on my hp-mini do to the minimal size of the harddrive. He had the printer driver installed and it worked for a couple days but now it says it cannot connect to that printer anymore I attempted to download a driver from hp in terminal, it wouldn't run so i dunno what to do at this point. Please help me so I I'm not forced to go back to windows as I primarily use this netbook for work.

I had a lot of issues with my HP LaserJet P1006 here is what I did (http://livefreelinux.blogspot.com/2011/11/hp-laserjet-p1006-troubleshooting.html).

Let me know if it works for you. Good luck!

Make sure that the HP packages are installed:


sudo apt-get install hplip hplip-gui

Then you can check here for drivers:
