Description Tim Waugh 2006-12-06 08:40:26 EST
Description of problem: The HPLIP service should only be running when an HP device it drives is connected. Can use HAL for that.

I'm not sure if the problem I am recently experiencing has to do with this bug. Please let me know if not and I'll file a new bug. This occurs on an up to date (as of 12/19/06) FC6. I can not print to a JetDirect connected HP OfficeJet 7110 All In One unless I scan something first using XSane. I've tried this with SElinux and firewall off, and on, the result is the same. Setup of the printer is done using hp-setup in GUI mode, and printing a test page right after setup works. Reboot, and then printing does not work unless scanning first, which works fine first time.

I guess the printers would already be configured, one way or another via system-config-printer/cups. We should be able to start up HPLIP after cups if a printer requires it. But what about network scanners? I guess the best bet is to make HPLIP a D-Bus service that can startup on demand, and die when nothing uses it.

HPLIP does give marker-supply-low-warning notices, yes, but CUPS keeps them persistent if HPLIP disappears after issuing them. They are part of the CUPS printer's printer-state-reasons attribute.

HPLIP 2.7.6 is now daemon-less.
