NOTE: During hp-setup, automatic PPD selection path for some PS devices is wrong on Ubuntu 18.04. Work around is to select the PPD for the devices manually from “/usr/share/ppd/HP” path through browse option or reinstall cups.
Below are the commands to reinstall the cups filters.
sudo apt-get remove --purge cups sudo apt-get install cups sudo apt install --reinstall cups-filters.
