Using HP LaserJet 2010 printer with Linux Mint

The problem: HP LaserJet 2010 printer gets recognized by Linux Mint but fails to print.

The solution:

  • Remove all automatically installed printers
  • sudo hp-setup -i

Let it download the HP plugin and accept defaults, then print test page (you must not be root or the print will fail).
