@JM43

Your best bet for Linux support, since HP does not provide Linux support to consumers, not does it provide drivers, is to contact the support forum for the Linux distro you are trying to install   -- in this case, the Ubuntu Forums:  http://ubuntuforums.org/

 Folks there have experience using HP machines with Linux and know a lot about driver sources and installation issues.
 
Good Luck
