You need to install hplib 0.9.5 or higher for your printer model. Here are the installation instructions: http://hplip.sourceforge.net/install/manual/distros/ubuntu.html

Then Go to System -> Administration -> Printing.
Choose "Add printer".
"Add printer wizard" should start and tell you what to do.

I hope this helps you
