when I run http://localhost:631/admin/ and go under either 'Add Printer' or 'Find New Printers', nothing at all is listed for local printers.
That will be due to the Smart Install 'feature' enabled in the printer. Until you can inhibit that, your printer device won't be available to be detected. Proof of this is that running the CUPS usb backend manually should normally enumerate the USB-attached printer device...

Code:
/usr/lib/cups/backend/usb

I still don't get why you haven't been able to disable Smart Install via Windows....

Odd that Launfal doesn't mention this in his 1102w instructions. He says it just worked from day 1.

I didn't try those procedures. If you posted that link before, I'm sorry I missed it.

I'm in the process of reinstalling Linux from scratch because I don't know what I've messed up with trying various things. I'm also going to re-install the Windows VM from an actual installation disk and not from an image restore -- which I suspect is a big part of the problem what with USB devices appearing and disappearing rather randomly. I'll try that disable Smart Install from there.

Coupla questions you may not know the answers to:

1. That link is a howto for Windows 10. Do you suppose it will work for Windows 7?

2. In case this printer gets moved to a different person's workstation one day, is it possible to re-enable the smart install?

I can only speculate here - perhaps it was disabled to start with.

I'm using Windows 7 and in an effort to assist I was able to execute it ok. It launched with a GUI successfully.

I doubt if anyone would want (or need) to use this feature ever. (However, the HP utility can be used to re-enable it if desired.)
