Anne et al.,
I have followed the directions on the referenced link.  Good for HP for 
providing such clear instructions,
however,
All steps complete as hoped but hp-check gives 2 errors & 2 warnings:
PyQt4 Dbus     error
Python Dbus     error
Reportlab           warning
CUPS DDK       warning

running hp-setup does seem to run and it let me install a printer 
although it issued an error:
error: No PPD found for model laserjet_4350. Trying old algorithm...

running hp-toolbox fails:
[roger at rwells-rh hplip-3.9.2]$ hp-toolbox
warning: python-dbus not installed.

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.9.2)
HP Device Manager ver. 15.0

I will try a printer with a scanner at home tonight but I am not holding out
much hope.

Any ideas appreciated, thanks for everyone's time
