Ubuntu: How do I install my HP printer through network?



Question:

  • When I plug the HP Deskjet2050j510 printer directly on my PC through USB cable, it is perfect.

  • But when trying through network, it can not find it.

Note
I'm using the HPLIP Toolbox to search the printer.
I also desactived the firewall.
My internet box is supposed to allow such functionality, it is a Livebox from Orange(France). Here is the documentation, but for Windows, not Ubuntu
My network installation is the following one: 2 PCs connected to the Livebox and the printer connected by USB to the Livebox too. enter image description here


Solution:1

Maybe you could try to find your printer through the normal printer dialog. You can find the dialog in the upper right 'gear' menu.

Click on + Add, then go to Network printers and then select your printer.
