I bought HP Laser MFP 135a black and white scanner/printer. I am new in Ubuntu and I use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I tried to open localhost:631 by installing CUPS in Terminal as seeing in one youtube video but no suceed. I do not know much to do. I use printer/scanner via USB. Could someone be kind and help me to set to work both scanner and printer.

    Does this answer your question? How to install HPLIP on my Ubuntu to support my HP printer and/or scanner? - use sudo apt-get install hplip hplip-gui, then hp-setup followed by hp-plugin . – N0rbert Jun 25 at 15:58
  • does the scanner/printer state that is supported on linux? Try doing the following: -Open Settings -Go to printer and press add The printer should be detected. Try using chrrome to print or libre office. Also do you have scanner software installed? – Joshua May Jun 25 at 16:10
  • The USB cable maybe faulty. Please replug it and show the output of lsusb -t - add it to the question. – N0rbert Jun 25 at 16:41

    Please don't put the terminal output in the comments. It is best to put all additional information directly into the question using the edit question link above. When you copy and paste any output from the terminal into your question please format them as code using the { } icon above the Edit Question window. – user68186 Jun 25 at 19:09
