This A3 USB printer is autoconfigured without fuss when you first plug it in and switch on. Black and white prints as it should. There are 2 entries for this model–it recommended the Postscript driver, I changed it to hpijs. Set printer properties, advanced, color mode to ‘Color’. Partners Support Community Ubuntu. Have not tried scanner. This list suggests that your c might be similarly supported.

Prints from OOo when in Postscript Level 2 mode. Works just fine for some, extremely slow for others. There are 2 entries for this model–it recommended the Postscript driver, I changed it to hpijs.
Bug#818706: hplip: HP DeskJet 840C – cannot print in greyscale
This list suggests that your c might be similarly supported. During the very short test, worked but did not print any colours. Have to choose it from the kinux in Gnome printer install. Works like a charm.
[ubuntu] Mismatched color issue on HP Deskjet c using Ubuntu
If, contrary to my expectation, your C isn’t recognized, then consider installing a newer version of hplip. USB both print and scan worked out off box with Dapper. I will update this accordingly as I print more. Just printed a test page, but that looks fine.
This A3 USB printer is autoconfigured without fuss when you first plug it in and switch on. Get the source code from http: Set the “Color Mode” option to “Color”.
For example of my nebieness: The mismatched color issue only happened on the Ubuntu machine. When printing in color, printer creates black colors by mixing the colors together, so it looks terrible.
printer HP DeskJet C
The driver that is included in Ubuntu does NOT work in previous versions. Power-cycling the printer is necessary to restore printer operation. The factory HP driver is of poor color print quality. Recommended PostScript driver did not work, but the hpijs driver worked perfectly. Auto detected and worked perfectly out of the box.
Both printing and scanning work, even over a network with printer connected directly to network. Set “Bits per Plane” to “2 Bits per Plane”. There was no mismatched color issue when printing out using these Windows machines.
To lonux as a network device hplip needed to be installed using the HP print utility, it then works perfect via network. Tested in several apps and everything looks ok. No ink levels available.
Sometimes pages with one or two lines of garbage are ,inux at the beginning of a print job. Device driver tested was HP Officejet j series 2.
Prior a printer installation, I ran the update, downloaded, and installed about updates. Have not tried with USB connection.
