As you can see, the file exists and I'm able to download it.
Is sourceforge by any chance blocked on your network?

Since you already have firefox installed, just navigate, using Firefox, to the following address and download the file: http://sourceforge.net/projects/hplip/files/hplip/3.14.1/hplip-3.14.1.run/download

Then, using Nautilus or whatever file manager you use, double click on hplip-3.14.1.run to install it. You'll need root credentials to do that.

That's because you're opening a 10MB file with a text editor (Gedit).
Click on the folder icon at the right of the downloaded file (or right click on it and select go to folder).
This will open your file manager.

Then right click on the file and select run.

If run is not available, open terminal, navigate to /home/firu/Downloads (or wherever you downloaded the file) and then type and run:
sudo chmod +x hplip-3.14.1(1).run

Open in new window


This will make the file executable and you can simply double click on it to run.

HTH,
Dan
