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  photo bye.gif

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 photo clown.gif 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  photo thumbsup.gif (Xsane looks and behaves like shit  photo pukey.gif)

su
dnf install simple-scan

The printer’s user manual can be found here.
