HP program on Ubuntu 15.04 Vervet Vivid Beta 1


Hey guys ...
I just installed Ubuntu 15.04 Vervet Vivid Beta 1, but I am not able to configure my HP printer with HPLIP program.
My printer is connected by ethernet cable.
Someone help me?

Try this from the command line:

Code:
hp-setup -i [ip address of printer]
If you are using the GUI tool (hp-toolbox), when you click to set up a device, click the "Advanced" button in the "Discover Device" page and enter the ip address of the printer in the appropriate dialog.

It is best to give the printer a static ip address if it doesn't already have one; it makes life a lot easier down the road.

Let us know what happens.
