Welcome to the forum!!

Have you tried installing the printers using the Ubuntu-supplied utility? (somewhere in your menus)

The other method (which I prefer) is the generic CUPS admin page. In a browser, simply type "localhost:631". If the printer is connected and turned on, then it should automatically be detected when selecting the "add printer" option.

This HP website might be of good use to you.

HP's phone number for support is: 1-800-474-6836

And for the Brother printer I found:

When I had Ubuntu I found printing in Sys> Admin> Printing
