I can't print from Ubuntu

I have an HP Officejet Pro 6978. I have previously used several other distros (solus, arch, etc…) without issue. I install hplip and setting the printer up takes 5 seconds. On ubuntu I am having no luck getting this thing to work, hplip is not functioning properly. I ran hp-check and installed the missing programs but still nothing. I also installed kde neon on my other laptop tonight and discovered the same issue. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful at this point

Is this a USB-connected printer?

No and I don’t have a cable.

Your printer supports AirPrint.
Take a look at this : AirPrint
Make sure you have the following package installed firstly : cups-ipp-util avahi-discover

Good luck!
