I started on this page for a manual install: Slackware instructions
Step 2 refers you to the "other distros" section where the dependencies are laid out in step 2
. My install was easy as I did a full install of Slackware so I just installed HPLIP per the steps outlined. I then configured using this: Network CUPS setup
. It helps to have the network page printed from your printer as it will have the ip address for the hp-makeuri command.
The HPLIP site is very informative. I found lots of great help there via the directions and also the knowledgebase they have. I saw they will answer questions there as well.
Once I had the correct HPLIP version the setup was a breeze. This page will show you which version you need for your printer: supported devices
[EDIT]I poked around the HP site a bit and if you have the J6400 (saw it in your error message) I am thinking you missed something on the install (you said you handpicked) that was needed. Maybe going through the dependencies they give will help and then you can install the missing bits with pkgtool.
