Choose 'foomatic' as the component.

manufacturer and "Okipage 6ex" as the model, the recommended "hpijs"
driver installs and works just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. On a system with a connected, but not yet configured, Okidata 6ex
printer, launch system-config-printer from a terminal window.
2. Click on the "New" icon, or select "New queue" from the action menu.
Actual Results: The above message is displayed in the terminal window.

The list of drivers includes "Okipage 6e/6ex" which does _NOT_ work

set to "HP4" emulation.
