I have a new printer HP LaserJet M402dne that I would like to install using the command line.

I run the following command :

hp-setup -i

I am then asked to choose a connection type, I choose USB and I have the following error message :

error: No device selected/specified or that suppports this functionnality

My printer is on and connected via USB. Weirdly enough, when I enter :

 echo "sometext" >> /dev/usb/lp0

the printer prints "sometext"

Can somebody help me install this printer or know why hp-setup won't recognize it ?
