I use two printers, an HP4630 & Xerox  6655, both on networks.

They have been in use with no issues from F24 upgraded to F25. Now with F25 upgraded to F26 there are some issues.

The machine is Thinkpad x260, running with Gnome desktop (3.24.2-1).

uname -a: Linux rwells-x260 4.11.11-300.fc26.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Jul 17 16:32:11 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

The HP 4630 has been set up using the HP Device Manager which recognizes it as expected.
No problem printing a test page from within HPDM
However within the "Printers" application available from Gnome "All Settings" the 4630 "Printer Details" shows the printer address as "localhost" (even though Cups shows the correct address) and any attempt to print from an application, e.g. LibreOffite Writer fails. The job is listed as "Stopped" and has to eventually be removed from the queue. A side note: XSane has no problem using the scanner component of the same device just as it did before the upgrades.

The Xerox 6655 printer appears with the correct IP address in the "All Settings/Printers/Printer" dialog and any print job remains in the Job list as "Stopped" just as in the case of the HP4630. However in this case the job is sent to the printer. After it prints it must be manually removed from the job list.

Anyone else seeing this?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
