HP Deskjet F2480 Printer driver

Post by Branta » Wed Mar 17, 2010 12:23 pm

I have a new HP Deskjet F2480 printer for which Linux Mint Helena does not have a driver.

When I run Control Pannel-->Hardware-->Printer it finds:
The driver it selects is and the closest one to it:
HP DeskJet f2200 Series hpijs 3.9.8 [en] (recommended)
After installation it reports it is:
hp Deskjet F2200 SERIES hpijs, 3.9.8
It does not print a test page though it is online. No change even after boot.

What do I do to get a driver for the HP Desjet F2480 printer (or probably the F2400 series)?

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.
