error: Unable to find an appropriate PPD file.
Would you like to specify the path to the correct PPD file to use (y=yes, n=no*,
Furthermore, if I specify the path to the file, hplip then says "error: File not
found or not an appropriate (PPD) file.
If I copy the PPD file from F-7, to this devel machine and use that, I'm able to
continue until the cups queue is being setup then I hit bug #186231.

Can you attach the PPD you were using on F-7 please?
Created attachment 158150 [details]
ppd that worked
Just to be clear here, bug #186231 existed before I tried to setup this
printer, it was not caused by the PPD that I pulled from F-7.
Please run 'hp-setup -l debug -i 192.168.1.11', try to configure the queue
again, and show me the output. Thanks.
This bug seems to no longer exist with hplip-2.7.7-1.fc8.
