    I find that CUPS works simplest for me. In browser localhost:631 
    login as root at the CUPS prompt or else it wont let you do anything.

        Add Printer > AppSocket/HP JetDirect

    In my system the address for an HP C-6800 is socket://

    Then follow menu items for manufacturer and model. I used the same
    procedure for the two Brother laser printers also. Just added the HP
    printer in F-18 and printed test page without a problem.
