Try installing the 'hplip' and 'hplip-gui' packages, then run the `hp-setup` utility.
I recently set up an HP combination scanner/printer, and while CUPS picked up the printer the second I plugged it in, the scanner needed that to work.
I had a similar issue in which the printer was picked up by CUPS and I can print without problem, but I am not able to scan. I do know that I had an old scanner working without problem.
I saw this email and went "worth a shot". Yum installed your suggestion, ran hp-setup, and it can't see any printer. If I go under admin->printer, it shows there and things are still working.
Testing on my F14 before migrating to F16. Maybe its an EOL issue?
I wanted to ask if I am missing anything obvious before I go down that path (as it involves walking up and down stairs as the F16 is on one floor and the printer on another).
Its an HP 7510 connected wireless into my Linksys router as DHCP. My F14 and XP box are static IPs connected into same router. Initial setup done on XP and everything working there. Nothing worked on F14 until I installed system-config-printer cups hpijs, and then printing worked after a simple set-up. Scanning did not.
If it makes any difference, the Linksys is wired into the Verizon router which is the connect to outside world ... so all connectivity is under my control and I don't have to muck with Verizon's hardware/software.
Another reason to avoid doing F16 is that it is a static IP connected into a different router which is attached to a WAP which is wireless into the main router which the printer, XP, and FC14. Just one more "extra thing" that I'd rather tackle once the simplier setup is working.
When I run hp-setup, it doesn't see any printer/device no matter which of the four options I pick
