Hi there guys! I'm a newbie in the Linux world. I'm starting with Deepin, so sorry if the question is dumb.

Anyway, I would like to install my printer (HP Officejet pro 8500 a910). When I open the printer setup, it keeps requesting me authorization. The problem is: even if I insert my user and password (the ones I choose on Deepin instalation) the printer software doesn't accept it.
When I try just to cancel the request, it shows a message telling me that CUPS has a problem. Sorry, but I don't even know what CUPS is. T_T
Some prints...








I would love to keep using Deepin, but I need my printer to work.

Thanks guys!

Thanks for answering!

I've entered the commands. All right with the first one. But I get the following message in the second one:

  1. ryuke@RyuDeepin:~$ fprintd-enroll
  2. list_devices failed: No devices available
  3. ryuke@RyuDeepin:~$
Copy the Code

It seems that Deepin doesn't support add-apt-repository

  1. ryuke@RyuDeepin:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:fingerprint/fingerprint-gui

I tried to use the Cloud Printer Manager, but I could't set it up too... Can someone help me?

The required authentication credential is for root user account.  Open Deepin terminal, run "sudo su -" and type in your password to change to root user. Then set root password by typing "passwd".  

Now open a web browser and visit "http://localhost:631" to a new printer.
