Chances are, your Linux system already has the HPLIP software installed. That's because all major Linux distributions regularly pick up the HPLIP software and include it with their distribution installation. However, if it is not installed or you need to upgrade to a newer HPLIP version to support your printer, you've come to the right place.

On this website you can download the HPLIP software which supports 2388 HP printers on nearly any Linux distribution available today.

You can also find answers to many of your questions within our new knowledge base, or post a question on the Get Help page when you can't find the answer directly.

For a more detailed overview of HPLIP see the About page or just browse the site and let us know what you think on the Get Help page.

Thanks for making it easy to find all this stuff, and a good quick Reference for all those that run hplip!  I wasn't sure to post here as it seems this would be a good Tutorial, or Pinned - not sure of the difference besides where they are located?  Linux Documentation is driving me Crazy! LOL.  Especially in the Printer and General Driver area, Graphics etc.  I have spent hours when I didn't need to, but it's all a bit disorganized to say the least.


pcpunk out!
