It seems that the issue is between "root" and my local user.  If I sign
on under "root", the HP Device application has no problem finding my
OfficeJet.  Nor does it have any problems with the scan function.  

If I am signed on as my local user, the system is unable to communicate
with the printer.

I did find that while going through the set up process for the printer
under my local sign in, that it asked for my password.  After typing it
in several times, I hit the cancel button.

There may be a disconnect where by the application is unable to
recognize my local sign on password.
