HPLIP Align: 'Next' button missing

hplip (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: hplip

Ubuntu 9.04 i386
HPLIP Software Version 3.9.4 Ubuntu 9.04
Device Manager Version 15.0 (Qt4)
HP Deskjet 842C, USB attached.

Software is accessed as follows:
      HPLIP GUI opened via: System --> Preferences --> HPLIP Toolbox
      GUI opens ok. Select: Actions --> Align Cartridges (Print Heads)

What Happened:
Step 6 of 6 is where you enter the alignment codes and finally click the 'Align' button. That works very well. .. but in the following panel: some glitches.
Glitch1: It is numbered 'Step 7 of 6'.
Glitch2: The panel prompts: "Please load plain paper in the printer and then click Next > to continue." However, there is no Next > button available on the panel. Only the 'Align' and 'Cancel' buttons are available, 'Back' button greyed out.

Then, clicking the Align button (left over from the previous panel?) immediately ends the dialogue with no messages and the printer prints out a final alignment page.
The process was successful I assume. I'm very pleased that my printer is supported. Thank you for your time and efforts!!

As this will happen independent on which distro is used, I forward the bug report to the upstream developers at HP.
