  Works perfectly
What works:

All the features seem to work fine. However, you WILL need to rebuild HPLIB.

What doesn't work:

USB interface has no issues. The issues I have with the wireless interface may be due to their (HPs) actual implementation and our network, not necessarily with Linux or HPLIB and CUPS.

What was done to make it work:

The most critical and most difficult parts were:

(1) getting all the libraries standard and -dev libraries needed to build HPLIB. The install routine works but you will need to probably rerun it several times as it finds another library dependency it needs and you don't have. Keep Synaptics package manager up until you get a clean build and are ready to install.

(2) Finding the correct libraries even with package manager can be a chore.
