Is this you? Anyway, the reply in that thread refers to this one.

Drivers from here

Use Turboprint and the official drivers.
There is a modified ppd here.

Seriously: sell it to a windows drone and get a real printer.

been trying hard to find an answer. I had an hp all in one that worked real well with linux. I had it set up with a windoze box but could print wireless with the ubuntu laptop. Then the printer stopped working and i took it back and was afraid to get another hp printer.
