Don't presume. Verify. :-)

Those lines should probably be the following:

	Listen localhost:631
	Listen /var/run/cups.sock

That's probably the reason why you cannot access the CUPS web interface.
Keep in mind there are also CLI tools: lpadmin, cupsenable, cupsaccept
and so on.

I got a HP Deskjet F380 all-in-one working with CUPS few years ago, and
all components (even the scanner) work. Make sure CUPS is actually really
running. There's also a /var/log/cups directory with log files where you
can check the events.
