hplip won't run, wants qt4

Last week I installed Lenny (netinstall) on a new Acer and everything went fine....except this machine has a non-upgradable ati radeon 2100 video driver. It is "supported" in that it runs but no direct rendering so I found a link which said using proprietary ati drivers would work...

WARNING>>>Don't try it, you may end up looking at a blank screen!!!!

Restored old xorg.conf got to a console login but X crashed trying to start & nothing I could do seemed to fix it.

So, first install went so easy, re-install.....

Now I cannot get printers. "Normal" printer install doesn't seem to work but hplip worked like a dream last time. Now I'm getting
crashedagain@acer:~$ sudo hp-setup

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 3.9.2)
Printer/Fax Setup Utility ver. 8.0

I had tried that earlier and it had failed after finding the usb connected printer....this time it worked.

...but "interactive mode" won't find my network connected HP C6380. It is connected through a router.

The last install I had to manually specify the ip ( but there doesn't seem to be any way to....

wait ...there it is in the hp-setup "help".

Got It!

Guess I just needed the hint (and a break...I've been at this all day).
