I want to print in color from an old HP Deskjet 5550 printer (17 years old and works without an issue, I heard).

What are my options?

  • I used a driver from the "HP deskjet 5400 series" now. By its design, it seems to be a different inkjet printer, but it works more or less (the first sheet isn't printed on and you have to press some button on the printer). I would be however still be interested how to install the correct driver, as I have to print from it from time to time. – lejonet Sep 29 at 11:25
  • support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201465 says it's supported natively. I've a much newer HP which needs HP's own suite to enable full print/scan functionality, but 'just printing' should work without. – Tetsujin Sep 29 at 11:44
  • @Tetsujin I can’t find the Deskjet 5550 on the list. – lejonet Sep 29 at 12:45
  • ah… D5500 series, might be different – Tetsujin Sep 29 at 12:47
