This is most likely one of these bugs:
but received the message that the HPIJS driver was not
available. (Note that I tried the Gutenprint driver when the printer
wasn't set to use HAL: it didn't work.)
I installed hpijs, now everything is fine.
This should have been done automatically; see this bug:
The fix is in FEDORA-2009-6777, pending a push to updates-testing.
I don't remember ever being asked to use HAL with another distro:
always put to contribution, I suppose. So, there must be a way around
this. Most newbies will never consider an option that isn't selected by
default for a printer.
I hope to fix some of the hal-cups-utils bugs later this week. In the
mean time, a work-around that often lets the printer work again is to
unplug it and plug it in again.
