Cups + hpijs


I recently installed both cups and hpijs via portage(on gentoo)...But I cannot get the hpijs drivers to show up in the localhost:631(cups config page)...What am i doing wrong? I have restarted the cups server..even the computer..am i missing something?

I only got it to work using foomatic when I used gentoo. try "emerge foomatic; USE="usb foomaticdb pdds" emerge cups; USE="foomaticdb pdds" emerge hpijs" (without the double quotes). just stop cups before doing this. Then fallow http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/printing-howto.xml and use foomatic-configure to setup the printer.
