hplip printing

I have a strange behavior of my printer, HP Officejet Pro 6830.
After a fresh install of Manjaro Gnome, hplip detects it, installs it but, from any software, it shows the Printing message, but it's not printing at all.
So, please, I need some help to solve this problem. Now I am using Ubuntu 18.04 for printing.
Best regards,

Open a terminal and type

hp-setup -i

Your printer may need extra firmware to work, the way I mentioned is the correct way to install this firmware as it will download directly from hp. I have to do this with my printer, a P1606dn.

Even if it doesn’t need extra firmware, it will be configured correctly once you finish with the above mentioned command.
