HPLIP (Hewlett-Packard Linux Imaging & Printing) is an HP-developed solution for printing, scanning, and faxing with HP inkjet and laser based printers in Linux. The HPLIP project provides printing support for 2,178 printer models, including Deskjet, Officejet, Photosmart, PSC (Print Scan Copy), Business Inkjet, LaserJet, Edgeline MFP, and LaserJet MFP. (Note: Not all models are currently supported. See Supported Printers for more information.)

HPLIP is free, open source software distributed under the MIT, BSD, and GPL license. See the Licensing Information page for more information.

HP does not provide formal consumer or commercial support for this software. Support is provided informally through a series of resources at Launchpad.net website, and on this HP sponsored website.

On this HPLIP website you will find FAQ's, open discussion email lists, installation instructions, product support (including list of printers supported AND unsupported) as well as other support documentation. If you need hardware support or additional assistance with non-Linux operating systems (such as Microsoft Windows) go to the main HP Support site.
