I have the HP 882 USB and it works fine for me. I used cups to set mine up. There have been some descriptions of how to set it up here on this forum so do some searching on here. If you still need help let us know and we can give you some additional help.

Use CUPS

I have an HP Deskjet 5550 and I simply used the CUPS web interface. Although, I have subsequently removed that printer to test out the gnome-cups-manager, and it worked fine from there also.

Try to configure it and see. It is hard to answer a question like that, since we don't know what you installed to begin with. We get people in here all the time that for some reason didn't install the basic packages and want us to figure out what ones they "really" need.
