I think I would give some credence to the stated requirements on the
The reason I raised the point was I know of people using D15XX (but
where XX < 80) with hplip versions well below 2.8.5, and HP now claims
2.8.5 to be the minimum for those printers too, as well as for a whole
lot of printers which are known to work with hplip versions less than
2.8.5. If I am not mistaken, the hplip site blindly states 2.8.5 as the
minimum requirement for all printers of this class. Maybe this is just a
convenient way of doing things for HP rather than figuring out each
printer's actual minimum requirement.
In any case, did you contact the port maintainer about updating
the port. If if doesn't get done before the port freeze, you will
probably be screwed.
Sure I did. Although the response was not was particularly thrilling :
I am not sure when I'm going to get around to doing an update. If you
want to take a stab at an update I'll be happy to review any patches,
but you will probably need the newer version to get things working.

My previous mail to freebsd-questions was marked as To by mistake. It
was only intended to be a CC. Sorry.
If you reply, please CC me separately. It makes it so much easier for me
to reply, if needed. BTW, I have never used hplip/CUPS before. I do hope
it's not terribly complex to setup and go.
Thank you and Regards
