My HP Deskjet F4480 is now not working since I upgraded to Mac OS 11.2 for my MacBook Air

I upgraded my  Mac  to OS 11.2 Big Sur and now my HP Deskjet F4480 All-in-One printer will not work.  There aren't any drivers listed.  I tried using the HP Smart App, but it says my printer is not connected when it is.  Any other suggestions???

@softballnut4245, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


This printer is not AirPrint compatible and has no printer driver available on the HP Support site to work on macOS 11.2

This printer does not support the HP Smart app.


For more info on this issue, refer to this document. 


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.

I was able to solve the problem, the solution is found in the Apple community:

Just download this hp software from Apple


I uninstalled and installed the printer again and installed the driver that I downloaded from above link and now it works. I also have a HP Deskjet F4480
