I've always touted kubuntu as being the better one

I have an hp wireless all in one, wireless scanning has never worked for me
in kubuntu. I do have hplip-gui installed.

I fired up last nights daily build of ubuntu and wireless scanning works
without any fidling.  When connecting the printer wirelessly it said
downloading driver. As far as I could tell it installed hplip instead of

Not a deal breaker for me but certainly could be for some.

Is there a way to have kubuntu download the better driver if it sees that
the internet has been connected ala ubuntu?
