I am having a similar problem with an 8600 all-in-one, and it seems that HPLIB is (temporarily) not supported in the latest version of UBUNTU (14.10) – user272813 Apr 23 '14 at 18:37

Check this out. These are HP Linux drivers and this page is for your model printer. Apparently these drivers are open source as well.
