HP F2410 printer on Ubuntu

Wanted a printer that works on Ubuntu. Did some research and realized HP printers are the most well supported.

Acquired a cheap SGD99.00 HP F2410 printer off local store. Installing it isn't as easy as plug and play but it's close enough. Essentially CUPS doesn't have the right PPD so it's off to HP website to download the the driver. They even provide a neat installation run file that does dependency checks!

Printing well and scanning works with Xsane. At such a low price I can't be happier. I owe HP one!
