HOWTO install HP LaserJet P1606dn in Debian 8 (Jessie)
USB Installation
It is very simple to install HP Laserjet P1606dn with the HPLIP Automatic Installer.
1) This installer is available to download at:
http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/downloads.html
2) Open a console and go to the location where it was downloaded
3) Run 'hplip-3.15.4.run' (In Debian 8 the installer only worked for me launching it with the superuser,
although it is recommended to launch it as a normal user).
4) Once you are asked about debian dependencies, it will resolve them automatically.
5) Next, drivers will be download and install automatically, if this option is selected.
6) Now, feel free to print and adjust duplex mode, etc.
