Actually,  The HPLIP is built into the system.
If you go to Control Panel and System Manager
(The same place you go to install different desktop environments) (NOT APPCAFE)
Then you will see under printing an option for: HPLIP
Just check it and click <OK> (or <NEXT> or ...  ) and it will be added to the system.
It's that simple... lol...  Took me 3 days to find that.
System Manag[er|ment] is your Hidden Friend!

Hi Hans,

i have had same issue with my HP OfficeJet 6500A all in one device. The 
solution for me was to compile HPLIP from ports. Before doing 'make 
install' i did 'make config' and set some options which are disabled by 
default, for example support for scanning. So i think the HPLIP pbi 
won't support such devices as long as the needed options are disabled by 
default in the HPLIP port.

kind regards
