Install CUPS first, then go to "localhost:631" with a web browser.
Use the "find new printers" function to have CUPS detect the printer
and load the required driver automatically. You can supply a PPD
if you have one. It might be needed to install "hplip" or "hpijs"
or "hpcups" with pkg in addition to CUPS.

Additional information:

It's really easy as long as your printer supports standards.

You can verify supported device (by hplip) on this page:

I see a "HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 1515" All-in-one Printer" is
supported, but I only find the "HP Deskjet F380", no "L380" model
in the lists; maybe that one is compatible to something else, or
works with the "foo2zjs" driver package ("Splix")?
