Is there a ppd for this printer?  If there is forget about hplip.
Download the ppd and plug it in via the cups localhost page.  Even if
there is no ppd for that specific printer you can probably find a ppd
that will work.  I have an HP Photosmart Pro9180 for which there are no
available ppd's, but I found one that works fine.  You do have to make
sure that you have all of the foomatic files installed.
