it might be difficult get document center and multi units.

HP manager is quite useless. Not needed to be installed.
Important driver are hplips driver. The ppd manufacturing driver are not much useful. There are often offered not only one driver.
You will get some error messages. You need to use the hplips driver and print via this driver.
further conect via tcp/ip

Hi
No issues here with HP Toolbox (as user), or using the hp-setup program,
just need to ensure cups is running and if using jet-direct (tcp) it
finds it and will select the correct driver.

Now I found out.
a: Login issues in HPLIP - use "root" write root as user name

b: use HP Printer Manager - seems to work. Not well, but works.
When using Diagnose, some files may missing and need to be installed later.
