Review of Linux Compatibility

The HP CM1312NFI is a all-in-one LaserJet device with integrated printer and scanner. It is fully supported under Linux thanks to the HPLIP drivers provided by HP. At least the version 2.8.10 of the HPLIP drivers is necessary in order to fully support the CM1312NFI.

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


If the scanner is found, one can scan with the console program


After placing a sheet of paper on the scan unit and presses the scan button on the printer, a file “hpscan001.png” is created in the home directory.

The scanner can also be used together with XSane, which can be installed under Ubuntu by:

sudo apt-get install xsane

The command “scanimage -L” can be used to check, if the scanner is recognized. This is also possible, if the CM1312NFI is accessed via its network connection and not via USB:

device `hpaio:/net/HP_Color_LaserJet_CM1312nfi_MFP?ip=' is a Hewlett-Packard HP_Color_LaserJet_CM1312nfi_MFP all-in-one
