Installing HPLIP for CUPS on a Raspberry Pi

If you have a HP printer or scanner and you want to be able to use it on your Raspberryi Pi running the Raspbian operating system, you`ll have to install HP Linux Imaging and Printing and CUPS.

In the terminal run the following commands:

sudo su
apt-get update
apt-get install hplip cups
usermod -a -G lpadmin pi

In a browser, on the raspberry pi you can now access the CUPS configuration screen at http://127.0.0.1:631/

If you also would like to use your MFP/scanner also run the following commands in the terminal:

apt-get install sane
sane-find-scanner

The configuration and applications are up to you, the requirements are now installed.
