But doesn't that mean that hplip is useless? If you can't

if you have an HP device that needs hplip, you have to be able to use
hp-setup. It's not as though there is a -tui version.
You can use system-config-printer or system-config-printer-kde to set up
your printer just fine, there's no need to use the vendor-specific hp-setup
Another reason hplip-gui is not installed by default is that the RH folks
objected to a vendor-specific tool (hp-toolbox) being in the default menus.
That said, hp-toolbox is the only UI which allows you to check the cartridge
state or align or clean the cartridges at the moment.
