    Have you tried installing hplip from your repos (if available) using dnf - as opposed to trying to import a '.run' file with dependencies unknown? If available, repos are always the preferred method.

    {Just a suggest/hint as I don't know what's available in Fedora anymore}

    Remember - importing/building packages will likely "byte you in the butt" come update/upgrade time, long after you'd forgotten you did that! Use repos whenever possible.

    It is a supported printer, however the above web page is chopped off at the right side (also in multiple browsers), so it's not displaying all of the connection method column. It is showing "Network", but nothing else. It's possible that it may be a network-only printer.
