You can choose in printconf-gui to install the HP Business Inkjet 2200

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create new print queue
2.choose the HP Business Inkjet 2200 printer
3.try to print
Actual Results: nothing (that's the problem) ;-(
Expected Results: printing ... !! :-)
I'm having the same problem while using HP Business Inkjet 2200 printer. Now, where can I go to find the answer??
I'm hoping this comment helps to increase the priority to something Above normal since the original bug was noted back in Dec.

install hpijs (from the previous website) and select the DJ9xxVIP device.
CHP2200 added to ghostscript-6.52-5.
Taken out again because it broke other drivers. As firstname.lastname@example.org says: use hpijs
