Actually, it is HP DeskJet 1112, but it always identifies itself as HP 
DJ 1110.

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 
switched off.

a) The first run does not produce identification for any HP/Hewlett 
Packard device
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.
