i go around in circles, try so many things, and it's hard to
know what's what.  to be more clear, the printer has worked
fine on this computer for months, and then suddenly didn't.
it had been set up with an network address (which i can
still ping) and then suddenly couldn't be found.  i finally
resorted to a usb connection, and am finally able to print
but only from the stupid gui.  neither lpr nor lp seem able
to find it, though hplip and cups both see it as the default
printer.  it is really frustrating.
