I filed a report at
and was told to update hplip... but having asked twice how to do so, I have
not received any responses. Can anyone here tell me how to get the more
recent hplip package on to my wife's maverick system?

I'd really hate to have to go back to Windows on that machine, but I'm sure
you can appreciate that not being able to print is not a viable position to
be in.
