Ubuntu 14.04 with HP Deskjet 930c

I’ve got old printer: HP Deskjet 930c. Following steps were necessary to use it with my Ubuntu 14.04:

  1. Printer: start + connect it via USB
  2. download HP drivers bundle called: HP Linux Imaging and Printing from: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/gethplip.html
  3. install bundle via (answering couple yes/overwrite questions):
chmod +x hplip-3.14.10.run && ./hplip-3.14.10.run 

You should see your new printer afterwards.
