I confess to not following this thread closely and this is not a direct
answer to your question but this combination works for me:

# yum list hplip libusb libjpeg libusb-devel libjpeg-devel


Installed Packages
hplip.i386 1.6.7-4.1.el5.4
libjpeg.i386 6b-37
libjpeg-devel.i386 6b-37
libusb.i386 0.1.12-5.1
libusb-devel.i386 0.1.12-5.1

All from CentOS repos. Good luck in getting your machine back to
the point that it "feels" like yours!

yes the hplip version is 3.9.2. First I removed the installed version
which was 1.6.7, I think. Then I followed the
directions at:


This went well but the "hp-check" near the end indicated two or three
errors that would show up at run-time were
present. These are some of what we have been discussing in this thread
and are apparently the ones that will prevent
"hp-toolbox" from running. They do not apparently affect "hp-setup".
Run hp-setup as root (the only way) and it should find your printers.
For each of mine a warning was issued:

error: No PPD found for model laserjet_4350. Trying old algorithm...

In the case of the C6180 this resulted in all printing going to 4x6 inch
pages to a printer that only had photograph
page size options. When offered to search for PPD files during
installation you can take that route and search
in /usr/share/ppd/HP for a more appropriate driver. Why "hp-setup"
doesn't find drivers there I don't know.
I had to select the one with the ".gz" extension to avoid an error about
a missing "foomatic-rip-hplip" something
or other. You can apparently do this "PPD" changeover after installation.

I did that with the C6180. If it still insists on printing in a 4x6
format I will report back.

As I said earlier the Centos 5.2 Scanner Tool seems to work just fine.
