I am a bit confused...
The hp-check.log you sent on June 15th showed that HPLIP did
indeed "find the printer", and that log was generated by HPLIP-2.8.5
which is newer than "2.4*".
...so, your statement which I have included above appears to be
Like it says in your hp-check.log:
hp-check: info: :Printer status: printer HP690C is idle. enabled
since Thu 15 May 2008 07:31:55 PM IDT
"warning: Printer is not HPLIP installed. Printers must use the hp: or
hpfax: CUPS backend to function in HPLIP."
The errors you mention in your original report are to be expected with
the configuration indicated in the hp-check.log you have provided.
There is nothing buggy with that behaviour; the utilities expect hp:
and hpfax: URIs and since none exist they don't find any usable
devices, the toolkit finds no devices for the same reason.
From a bug report point of view, and taking the additional info into
account, this is the interesting bit in your original message:
"So I try to configure the device, go through all the steps and
on "finish", am back with no devices or unsupported device."
Later on you said:
"I tried changing that to one with HP stuff in it."
That is the setup (the one with an hp: type device URI) we need to see
the hp-check.log and actual error messages/reports for. It may well be
something as simple as a missing underscore in the URI.
