Did you find it necessary to recompile the kernel with ulpt disabled?
I have a HP PSC2110 "All-In-One" that I can use in Linux (printing and
scanning) but was unable to get working in FreeBSD. I believe part of the
solution is to disable ulpt and recompile the kernel, but I had trouble
getting hplip to work. FreeBSD does not have hpoj, which is what I use in
Linux with this printer.
