jetdirect printers are HP printers with network connections. With Redhat 7,

messages in the status.lp (in /var/spool/lpq/lp):
LP filter msg - 'Make_passthrough: pid 3351, execve
'/usr/lib/rhs/printconf/jetdirectprint' failed - 'No such file or
It makes sense because this file doesn't exist...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a jetdirect printer with printconf gui
2. Try to print on it
3. Contemplate the result: nothing...
We (Red Hat) should really try hard to fix this before next release.
Yeah, um, I left out smbprint, jetdirectprint, and ncpprint helper scripts.
