Actually, it is HP DeskJet 1112, but it always identifies itself as HP

This USB printer works fantastically with primary and secondary boxes
(both FreeBSD 10.3/11). I have never had a problem with this printer
printing with FreeBSD::hplip.

I checked the output of usbconfig by doing this : I ran usbconfig twice,
first time with the printer on; and then a second time with the printer
a) The first run does not produce identification for any HP/Hewlett
b) Both runs produce exactly the same output.

Now it gets interesting. On neither my primary box nor my secondary box
have I succeeded in printing to this printer with CUPS. I have always
had to delete the CUPS queue and print with hplip.
On this tertiary box, it turns out that printing with CUPS is cool : - )
This is the first time I am seeing CUPS working so well and easily on
any of my boxes.
So the hplip issue becomes of less import.
Thanks for your help.
