what Distro are you using? Many of the distros come with most of the printer drivers out there. I have an HP1020 and I just plugged it in and worked.
If for some reason your distro doesn't have the drivers google it my friend and you will find them.

It looks like printing should not be a problem using CUPS:

Here is info about using CUPS:

I am confident that CUPS is already installed on your linux distribution.

It seems that it is not too difficult to get working in the ubuntu/kubuntu distributions:

This link says that using CUPS and the Photosmart 2600 driver, it should work ok:
