Have a look at:

It's for an Optra E321 instead of your E322, but it should be the same.

It says you should use the hpijs driver. Do you have that installed?
Half-way down the page, there is a link to a PPD for the E321. Download
it, put it in /usr/share/cups/model and restart CUPS. Then go and set up
your printer again via the web admin tool, and make sure you select the
driver that you've just installed.

The Optra supports postscript printing, and the hpijs driver is supposed
to be very high quality, so the printer really should work 'perfectly'
as advertised on LinuxPrinting.

If it doesn't work, post the output of your CUPS logs with the debug
level at the highest setting.
