Seems to work well: HP Linux Imaging and Printing
Gentoo will emerge older version (0.97 as of 2-24-07,) but it worked fine:
emerge -av hplip
Afterwards start hplip:
Add to run-level if you plan on using often:
rc-update add hplip default
Restart CUPS Daemon:
Open the delightful a href=”http://localhost:631/” CUPS Configuration utility /a in your favorite browser.
Follow the HOWto or basically follow menus through
"Manage Printers" -> "Add a Printer" -> LogIn as Root -> Give the Printer a Name (at least) -> Select the Device that says something similar to "hp:/usb/PSC_1600_series?serial=..." -> Select Make "HP" and Model - then new PPD - "HP PSC 1600 Series"
If all went well CUPS will utter a cheerful message and the new printer should show up under “Printers”. If it is plugged in, calibrated, and powered-up should say it is Ready to accept jobs, so go ahead, print that test page.
OpenOffice Writer Version 2.1 just found the default printer and printed up color documents including images. Not sure about previous versions (?).
