Description of problem:
SELinux is preventing /usr/bin/python3.4 from 'ioctl' accesses on the file /root/.hplip/hplip_config_usb_printer.log.

*****  Plugin catchall (100. confidence) suggests   **************************

If you believe that python3.4 should be allowed ioctl access on the hplip_config_usb_printer.log file by default.
Then you should report this as a bug.
You can generate a local policy module to allow this access.
allow this access for now by executing:
# grep hp-config_usb_p /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol
# semodule -i mypol.pp

Tim, BTW upstream has been shipping their own SELinux policy module since 3.15.11, see this type enforcement file:
Comment 2 Miroslav Grepl 2015-11-20 12:21:12 EST
Why is /root/.hplip used for log files?
Comment 3 Jiri Popelka 2015-11-23 10:58:57 EST
*** Bug 1279232 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 4 Jiri Popelka 2015-11-23 10:59:47 EST
Upstream uses ~/.hplip/ for log files and hplip.conf (per-user settings file).

The hplip_config_usb_printer.log is written by
which is started by
hplip-printer@.service which is triggered by udev
i.e. as root and ~/.hplip/ means /root/.hplip/ in that case.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2015-11-30 07:16:24 EST
I've previously had to patch in a special case for USER==root to avoid this someone in HPLIP.
Comment 6 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2016-06-24 06:37:12 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 08:31:21 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 8 Fedora End Of Life 2016-12-20 11:01:20 EST
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
