Bug Description

Whenever I need to install a binary plugin for my HP printer, hp-plugin asks for the root password. However, my system is set up to use sudo instead (root login is disabled), so it's very inconvenient to have to exit out of the installer GUI every time and manually run "sudo hp-plugin" from a terminal.
