Help with parallel to usb adapter connection issue in Mint?

While I haven't used the parallel to usb adapter, I would recomend using the hplip tools by themselves and letting them add your printer to CUPS.

Either way can get your printer functioning, but the raw HP tools seem to find devices better.
