    (Solved) HP CP1025nw (cannot install)

    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone been able to get this printer working on Ubuntu 12.10?
    I've tried multiple ways all of which seem to fail.

    I've plugged it in via usb, and used the printing settings thing. It's unable to see the printer at all.

    When I plug in a network cable, it sees it as a network printer, installs but doesn't print. It comes up with an error.

    When I use HPLip it isn't able to find any drivers for it. Right now I'm in the process of reinstalling Ubuntu 12.10 and trying again.

    Does anyone know anything about this printer?

    After I installed my printer it didn't work correctly, so I sent to http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html as recommended by OffGridGuy.

    I was able to find information that fixed my problem. I think you will too.

    Thanks a lot for the replies, I've been able to solve my problem but I'm not sure why it worked. After reinstalling Ubuntu 12.10 it worked. Somehow, connecting it via an ethernet cable and installing it as a network printer did the trick.
