Connect arduino to HP Laserjet

Hi, i want to connect a USB printer to an arduino to control it, i know that i can connect a Printer by using the Parallel cable, but my printer only works with usb.
Any ideas????

I think you may have a difficult time unless you have worked with printer control codes which are probably proprietary and have worked with serial communication.

Even still, look at this tutorial for a basic thermal printer

to give you an idea of what might be involved. Good luck.
