I have two HP printers, one connected to a parallel port, and the other 
a network printer connected via wireless.

I have been able to print with no problems, including via printing 
directly from within LibreOffice Writer.

I know I use the hplip package for my network printer, but the other 
one, I configured.

I have other computers in my network using both the wireless printer, 
and the one connected via a parallel port to my main computer.  The main 
computer is configured to export its printers, and other machines make 
use of it.

It seems that I had one of the other computers set up to use that 
parallel-connected (exported) printer, but later, after updates were 
installed (that included CUPS updates), it seems that configuration 
disappeared, and I had to re-configure it (the other computer didn't see 
any exported printers any more).
