Just checked Cups and Hplip, both in Ubuntu Software Center. Software Center should be in launchbar on left side of screen. These sites will help.

http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_Precise

http://ubuntu-manual.org/downloads

If the taskbar is not on the left side of the screen, press the Super (Windows) key.

Try:

cd $HOME
wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/hplip/hplip-3.12.9.run
chmod +x ./hplip-3.12.9.run
./hplip-3.12.9.run

Get the latest HPLIP, may help
