Setting up printer on OpenSuSE


I have a copy of OpenSuSE which works fine, but like previous older versions of Linux it is difficult to setup the printer which is a HP 2605dn color laserjet. Once, I was able to get it setup using the CUPS software online, but was only able to print out a test copy and after that I was where I was before the setup.

This problem also happened on a Netbook computer which came with Ubuntu on it. The OS was able to pick up the network printer the first time too. On OpenSuSE it does not pick it up automaticly and and it seems to be difficult to setup using the built in software, or the cups system.
