How To Set Up HP P2015 For Kubuntu 10.04

I finally managed to get LibreOffice to see the printer automatically, without a restart, and Opera web browser to see it, with a restart. The rest of my post tells you the instructions.

I installed the following software, which was found in KPackageEdit.

  • CUPS [probably installed already]
  • HPLIP [we might not need this; too lazy to check]

If your applications cannot see the printer, then you probably need to go to the command line to manually start or restart CUPS, or something like that. Try typing sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart. If you cannot get it to work, then leave a comment below.

If you are successful, then do no more configuring until you see what happens with your applications. In other words, CUPS is supposed to be very automatic. It is supposed to be able to detect your printer, and set it up for you. Try running the print dialog for your applications [e.g. LibreOffice, Opera], to see if it can detect a printer.

If you still cannot get it working, then I recommend the following pages.

If you still cannot get it working, then please leave a comment for others who are experiencing the same problem.

The end. Thank you for reading!
