Hello and welcome to the forum

While I realize that English may not be your native tongue, it is important for us to be able to understand what you're saying in order for us to help you. You don't give any details as to the nature of the problem. First, please read the information here and here. Please note the rule concerning "text speak."

Quote:
All member-created content should be in English. This allows our moderators to ensure all content complies with all LQ rules. In addition, we recommend you avoid sms/l33t speak in the technical fora. Avoiding sms/l33t speak will improve question clarity and increase the chance of receiving a helpful response.
So you are unable to connect your printer to your computer? If so, why?

Regards...

You connect the printer and configure it in CUPS.

Please tell us what Linux distribution and version you are using, and check whether you have the hplip package installed. Practically all distros come with cups, the basic printer software, preinstalled but HP printers need hplip as well.
