CentOS release 6.8 (Final)

I've been able to print to this printer with no issues, until this
evening.  When I tried to send a print job the job just sat in the print
queue.  I killed the job and deleted the printer, then re-installed the
printer using the Printer configuration tool found under
System/Administration/Printing.

I've tried all manner of settings, both on the Libre Office document and
in the Printer configuration tool.  Now I can print to the printer but I
cannot get the printer to print in Landscape orientation.  Only portrait
orientation comes out no matter what settings I choose.

I've done a bit of Google work but I find nothing that appears
applicable to my specific issue of not getting landscape prints no
matter what setting I choose.

The HPLIP web site says the latest version of hplip for my machine, RHEL
6 because they apparently have not heard of CentOS, is
hplip-3.16.9_rhel-6.0.x86_64.  CentOS does not have this version
available in the repo.

What's a guy to do?  Windows should be this hard to work with, but not
Linux.
