Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

As far as I know, HP only supplies Windows drivers, not Linux.

 

And since those are completely different OSs, you can not use Windows drivers in Linux.

 

Also, for Linux support, since HP does not provide that, you would need to contact the appropriate Linux support form for the Distro that you are running.  Here is the link for the Ubuntu Forums:  http://ubuntuforums.org/


Good Luck

OK ... but drivers in Linux are installed in an entirely different manner than the self-extracting executables that HP provides for MS Windows.

 

You need to go to the Ubuntu Forums and do searches on how to install drivers -- it is a LOT of work, and difficult to do -- not something we can walk you through here.

I understand, but what I'm trying to tell you is that HP generally does not provide Linux support.

 

Your chances of getting the details you need, especially regarding the difficult process of building Linux drivers, is MUCH better if you go to the right place -- the support forums for the Linux distro you are using.


Good Luck
