You can try this

Install the below packages first

yum install hplip.x86_64
yum install hplip-gui.x86_64
yumm install system-config-users

Once installation is complete, open "User & Groups". Go to the users tab. Select your user, and click on properties. Go to the group tab in the user properties window and look for the group "lp" and add the check mark to it and press okay. Open the "HP image manager" > Add device. Login as root & root_password. Finally deselect hp fax and save. You can print a test page by the command hp-testpage
