It's an HP LJ P4515, and it works well now that it is setup.

To find the Linux driver, I went from the printer's web page to the HP
support site to the HPLIP site.  The first time, my browser crashed.
The second time, I didn't see anything obvious to download.  Then I
gave up and hacked the Mac PPD.  Now, in hindsight, I see that
hplip-3.10.6.tar.gz has a suitable PPD.  I found the process much more
difficult than it should be.
