Well, actually hp-setup isn't using PolicyKit, system-config-printer is (so
I'm replying to the wrong message).
But hplip has its own bogus checks against running as root (search for
getuid in /usr/share/hplip to find them).
If you try to run hp-setup as user it tells you that it *must* be run as root.
This is a one-time run.
