Hi, I cannot seem to install the listed printer in Fedora 25. I know the printer requires additional drivers, so I found the website with the open source driver. http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/

However, when I install the software, it does not recognize my printer. Fedora installs it but requires additinal drivers. What can I do to install it? Is there another way to secure a driver?
