trouble connecting my HP Photosmart 4780 to the internet

HP Recommended
HP Photosmart 4780
macOS 10.15 Catalina

When trying to connect my HP Photosmart 4780 to the internet via HP's website, there is no option for my version of Mac which is 10.15. The version's only go up to 10.9 I think. I cannot print unless it is wireless as there is no USB port anywhere on the printer because its suppose to be a wireless printer. I tried to download the most current software available but it says my Mac cannot support the software. So my question is how the heck am I supposed to print?

@Alex01121, Welcome to HP Support Community!


HP Photosmart 4780 driver for macOS 10.15 is not available from the HP website or Apple Software Update. However, Gutenprint (formerly called Gimp-Print) provides open-source basic print drivers for many printers that would otherwise not be supported in Mac OS X. To see if your printer is supported, go to Gutenprint drivers for more information.


NOTE: Gutenprint drivers are not supported by HP or Apple.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
