    Printing to hp j6480 with 16.04 lts

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum. I believe have downloaded the software and installed it via command line. But how do I get my printer to show up in the GNOME Add Printer?

    Looking around online shows that other people have had similar problems. They managed to solve their problems by installing a few files & then re-running the installer. Could you install the following & then re-run the installer....

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hplip-gui hplip hplip-cups hplip-data hpijs hpijs-ppds

    Thank you, Fury! So I followed your suggestion, re-ran the installer. What should I see when I go to +Printer? Do I need to be on the network - this is a networked, wireless printer. I have not tried that yet.

    Tell the printer to connect wirelessly: it is in the options. Once you do that, Linux should find it right away.

    I did not install anything here: I turned the printer on, went into its menu and chose to connect wirelessly. It connected just fine. Hplip and hplip-gui will need to be installed to scan.
