How to get the HP OfficeJet 3833 to work on Fedora

A short and quick tutorial, just for me. You don’t like it? Feel free to FUCK OFF

sudo dnf -y install hplip-gui-3.18.12-9.fc29.x86_64

Before setting up the printer through “HPLIP Graphical Tools” make sure the printer and laptop are connected with a “USB AB cable” 🙄 I cannot use the printer over wireless, cable will have to do. Which btw, is perfectly fine for me.

Scanner has to be set up outside “HPLIP Graphical Tools” .

Simple Scan is the way to go (Xsane looks and behaves like shit 😡 )

su
dnf install simple-scan

The printer’s user manual can be found here.
