Hi NanaDory, welcome to the Peppermint Forum  ;D.  You need to install hplip from the repository.  Open a terminal window with the following keystrokes: Ctrl+Alt+t.  Enter the following command into the terminal window:

Tip:  Linux is case sensitive.  To reduce the possibility of typographical errors please click the Code: [Select] function below to highlight the contents. Click on the centre mouse button/wheel while the cursor is in the terminal window to paste the contents.

Code: [Select]
apt install hplip-gui -y
Hit enter.  Enter your user password when asked and hit enter.

Note: For enhanced security, passwords are entered invisibly.  There is NO indication of any user input.  You may enter an incorrect password 3 times before you have to repeat the action you are trying to apply.

You can find the, HPLIP Toolbox by navigating to: menu > Preferences > HPLIP Toolbox.  Make sure your printer/scanner is connected to your computer and turned on.  You will be able to configure your printer/scanner from here.  I hope this helps.  Good luck and have fun  ;).

Hi NanaDory, how's it going?  Have you followed the instructions I posted?  I have checked for drivers and your printer/scanner is in the supported device list.  If you are unsure about the instructions, please let us know and someone will gladly provide you with further assistance  ;).
