The same thing happens to me with my HP Photosmart C3180 -- it is quite
mysterious and I got very lucky stumbling upon this bug.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2007-11-30 11:18:17 EST
What probably ought to happen is that system-config-printer-applet, which is
responsible for displaying the "new printer" notification bubble, should perform
the same checks as system-config-printer to see if the necessary drivers are
installed, and offer to install them if need be.
Comment 3 Eric Ziegenhorn 2007-11-30 11:30:08 EST
That sounds reasonable to me.  Thanks for creating this bug in the first place.
 I can verify that installing hplip made my printer work as well.
Comment 4 Otto Rey 2008-01-13 13:02:38 EST
Yes! Comment #2 sounds as the right path, because when adding a HP Network
Printer in system-config-printer, Fedora ask me to install hplip package to work. 
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2008-01-16 11:31:53 EST
Fixed upstream.

Not sure this is working right in 0.7.74.9-2.fc8.  I'm not getting a
notification bubble.
