Well I am very confused.  I decided to delete all printer definitions
and start from scratch using the cups web administration process to add
a printer.  Once added, I went to the HP Device Manager and it had an
icon for the printer but said that it could not be connected.  I then
switched users to "root" and using the HP device Manager it showed the
printer connected with icons for options to scan, print or fax.  One
thing that I did find peculiar is that it asked for a user id/password
when adding the printer.  I tried to use my local user id/password but
it would not accept it.  It seemed to be in a loop and kept popping up
asking for user id /password.  I finally entered root and password which
it accepted.
