Bug Description

Our support for HP inkjets (including multifunction models) is excellent, but might be improved if Jockey suggested installing hplip-gui for compatible hardware - they integrate elegantly with the desktop and it allows for monitoring supply (i.e. ink) levels, and can even be used to configure newer models to join wifi networks, etc.
