Have you looked at http://hplip.sourceforge.net/supported_devices/index.html ?
There's also http://hplip.sourceforge.net/faqs.html from where you'll find a
link to Launchpad - their ticketing sysem for problems. If your printer is
listed as supported (and I don't recall you ever said what model it is) and
you can't get hplip to see it, use Launchpad. They are very helpful.
