    Printer driver issues

    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.

    Make sure that the HP packages are installed:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hplip hplip-gui
    Then you can check here for drivers:
