Bug Description

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 15.04 and am attempting to install hplip and the associated plugin(s) for my printer/scanner (HP LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw color MFP).

After installing hplip, hplip-dbg, hplip-doc, and hplip-gui, I ran hp-setup, selected my printer (connected via Ethernet), and chose to download the associated plug-in. This returned an error dialog:

HP Device Manager - Plug-in Installer
(X) file does not match its checksum. File may have been corrupted or altered

Command line output:

$ hp-setup

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.15.2)
Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 9.0

Sourceforge site is down (http://sourceforge.net/blog/sourceforge-infrastructure-and-service-restoration/) and unfortunately hp-plugin utility is not able to fetch the plugin.conf from sorceforge site.
Can you directly download the plugin files from here:

To install the plugin file you can run command 'sudo sh hplip-3.15.2-plugin.run' in terminal or you can run command 'sudo hp-plugin' in terminal and choose the second option to manually select the hplip-3.15.2-plugin.run file and install.

Run command 'hp-setup' to configure the print queue.

Thank you, goutamkk. Your work-around was successful with 1 thing of note:

During hp-setup this error dialog is returned:

HP Device Manager - Setup
(X) Unable to locate the HPLIP Fax PPD file:
Fax setup has been disabled.

This isn't a problem for me, but others may need the fax driver as well.
