Configure HP LaserJet 100 colorMFP M175nw scanner on Ubuntu

If you have bought an HP LaserJet 100 printer and have it connected on the network, but somehow fail to scan from it, here’s how:

  • sudo apt-get install hplip (chances are you already did that, but in the worst case this will do nothing)
  • sudo hp-setup (this launches a new window)
  • search network (if you enabled this in the printer web config page, you can select the “Bonjour” protocol)
  • let it find your printer and select “download and install driver”
  • accept to “add printer”




That’s it. Launch simple-scan and you should be able to “scan a single page” or “scan all pages from A4 feeder”.
