It is Photosmart 2410.

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep hplip

PLEASE HELP WITH THE PRINTER PROBLEM. The computer is detecting a printer model 2570 which I dont have. It is not detecting model 2410 which I have.

That's not the output of the command I gave, so WRITING UNECESSARILY IN CAPS doesn't actually do anything at all. If you give what I asked for, we can progress.

I wrote in caps because I cannot read the text because it is so small. I tried to copy and paste the output but it didnt work.
I managed to delete the other HP model.

accrc@ubuntu:~$ lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep hplip

Grab the latest HPLIP from the hplip site, it will be a .run file. Mark it as executable and run it in terminal as your user (without sudo). May help

Can you help with this problem?
