I had this printer printing before, but someone uninstalled it.

I just need to get it printing again.


It's connected with a USB.

Go to http://localhost:631, that brings up the CUPS administration interface. Then click on "New Printer"...or something like that, I've forgotten the details.
It's "Adding Printers".

When I had an HP, I found it better to install hplip and then set up the printer with hp-setup. With hplip you get the bonus of a trouble-shooting application as well.
