Review of Linux Compatibility

The HP Officejet Pro 6230 is a all-inkjet printer and is fully supported under Linux thanks to the HPLIP drivers. At least the version 3.14.10 of the HPLIP drivers is necessary in order to fully support the Officejet Pro 6230.
Under Ubuntu the needed drivers can be installed via the apt-get package manager:

sudo apt-get install hplip hpijs hplip-gui

Otherwise, the drivers can be downloaded from HPLIP web site. The downloaded files (eventually after unpacking them) can be installed (as root):


Under Ubuntu this step is not necessary (because installation is done by the package management system) and one can immediately skip to the configuration step:

sudo hp-setup
