As far as I can tell, it is supported according to
which I'm sure you will have read.

In my experience using drivers for one similarly named
model for another won't work with HP printers but the
page above suggests that it is functionally similar to
a 3840.

It seems from
somebody else has this problem so it might be worth
following this thread and maybe adding your thoughts.

Make sure you have hpijs, hplip and hplip-data

Other than that I'm outta thoughts.
