    Noob proof HPLIP install

    Hi all. I'm a first time user of Linux and have recently installed Wary Puppy 5.5. I have tried to install my printer but to no avail . It appears that the required driver (HP Deskjet 1510 all in one) is missing from CUPS. However, I understand HPLIP is an alternative way of installing printers/scanners but I haven't got a clue how to go about installing HPLIP.

    I understand there are several 'how-to' guides out there but I find that even these are too advanced for my understanding of Linux.

    I would very much appreciate if someone could explain to me in a simple step-by-step guide on how to install HPLIP and from there, find and install my printer.

    Any help towards the issue will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for reading

    Thank you for your prompt reply, voidpointer, but when i run the hplip file from console i get the error message: "/hplip-install: line 2: python: command not found:
    This seems to me that i need to fully install Python before proceeding with hplip install. There is a list here of the dependencies needed for hplip to install:
    (i had to cut out the http from the above url because of my limited account privileges)

    My plan is to install the python files first and go from there. I managed to install the 'python-devel' file with ease because it is a straight-forward .rpm. However the other two, 'python-xml' & 'python2x' seem to be zip files. Do you know if theres a way of extracting these files and installing them? Or whether i need to get a .rpm for these files too?

    Sorry if these questions seem a little simple but im really lost with Linux, being used to using windows platform. Thanks again
