Unhappy HP Photosmart c5180 running Ubuntu 8.04 usb plugged not found have run HP setup repoe

HP Photosmart C5180 all-in-one printer is not found or detected automatically or when I run HP Setup. I am running Ubuntu 8.04 on Linux kernel ver. 2.6.24-21 on a nVidia nForce4 Ultra+ motherboard with AMD socket 939 based Athlon 64 processor. The printer is connected with a usb cable to the back of the box. Any and all help getting this printer to work will be greatly appreciated.

Is your printer supported? Check here to see if its supported. I have a C4280 even through the c4280 isn't fully supported I use the C4200 drivers. Well Kubuntu detected my printer automatically when I installed it.
