HP printers and multifunction units are well supported in Fedora, thanks in large measure to HP's decision to open-source its driver software and utilities (hplip) in cooperation with related projects such as sane, ghostscript, and cups. The hplip-gui package provides a simple, convenient GUI front-end to these tools, making it easy to scan and print documents, access photo cards, and control copy and fax functions. hplip-gui also provides access to useful device information such as toner and ink levels.
The HP Device Manager displays a list of available devices and provides a point-and-click interface to the features of each model. External programs such as xsane are leveraged where appropriate, and other capabilities are provided directly by the device manager.
