Installing an HP 2840 All-In-One Colour Laserjet in Debian

The HPLip toolbox is a great app - it's one of those GUIs you expect to see in Windows and are surprised top find in Linux. It is a central place for management of HP printers, scanners, multi-function devices and all-in-ones. You can print, scan, fax and copy from there.

Installing the HP AIO 2840 colour laserjet requires loading additional PPD libraries from your package manager however.

The HP_Color_LaserJet_2800.ppd.gz file is in the package.

Once you've used something like the Synaptic package manager or Aptitude to install that, open HPLip, either detect or give it the IP address on the 2840, and it should bring up the correct ppd file.
