afaik the hp setup client pretty much is a GUI frontend to setup a printer with CUPS? because if i run
Quote:
chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups
i get the same missing modules error


is this normal? considering the hp printer setup client was packaged with slackware? if it IS normal where can i get the required packages? from source?

Yes it adds a printer to cups.
I have Hp Officejet 4860 setup for wireless printing, this is absolutly no problem.
I have cups started on boot, and I know it needs except from cups the hp-printing package and gutenprint, which is all availible from slackware.

What slackware version are you using anyway?
Maybe you could try to reinstall the mentioned packages.

I just configured my wireless HP printer last night. I found that I needed to get a newer version of HPLIP before I could get going (Slack has 3.9.4 and my model needed 3.9.8). I checked on the HPLIP site to make sure I had the right version then just removed the 3.9.4 version and followed their directions for 3.9.8. Then I just used CUPS to set it up.

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.
