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.
