    How do I direct connect a printer so it works?

    I have a HP Photosmart 7450 Printer that I would like to use with my chromebook and am having no luck. The choromebook seems to recognize it but nothing happens.

    Calling HP is purgatory, but if you call direct to the e printer dept., perhaps they can help. True the hp e printer software does not support Chromebooks, but the e printer dept. was able to get me up & printing. HP's e printer direct # is.....855.785.2777.
    Finger's X'd for you.

    Sorry, but the FAQ tells that you couldnt use a local printer:

    Can I print from my Chromebook by plugging it in to my printer?

    No. Google Cloud print is the only way to print from a Chromebooks. You can’t print by plugging in your printer to your Chromebook’s USB port because the device doesn’t have print drivers loaded on it. Chromebooks must have an Internet connection to print because the print job needs to go through Google’s Cloud Print servers.

    OR

    you need a HP ePrint enabled Printer:

    of course, I hadn't picked up that the printer referred to wasn't an e printer.
    I posted a ? about being all hooked up to e print etc., but when I do, it won't print color.
    See previous posting. Any help here?
    Thanks.
