hplip fix


When installing an HP LaserJet via wifi I was required to download a driver plugin. After the plugin installation, which apparently succeded with a sort of "installation complete" message, the printer was not installed at all. And this happens every time I start the installation.

Turning on debug with "-g" it appears that sane libraries are missing

hp-setup[31158]: debug: Either /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/ file is not present or symbolic link is missing
hp-setup[31158]: debug: /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/ library status: 0
The problem is already reported elsewhere and this fix by a slackware user worked for me
This is a long time bug that I faced about an year ago with another wifi printer. Browsing the net I can see that the same fix worked for others, so I wonder if we can have this fix in -current as long as the problem is not solved in a future hplip release.
