Bug Description

I apologize for being brief but all necessary details are here:

and the workaround is the same (see comment #17): Remove libsane-hpaio
and lpinfo -v will start reporting your parallel ports (connected to a
HP-printer). In my case, the connected printer was a HP LaserJet 6P.

As this is also observed under Red Hat Linux this is most probably an upstream bug. I add the appropriate upstream task.

Can someone of the HPLIP developers at HP have a look into this?

Tim, can you attach the patch of your HPLIP package of the Red Hat bug report from the original description, comment #21 to this bug report? This would make it easier for the upstream developers to fix this bug. Thanks.
