Yeah, I know;  Sometimes a lot of "cruft", or at least, what to me
seems like cruft gets dragged in.

For HPLIP to recognise your printer is *has* to be set up through the
HP device.  For example, mine is named as follows (via CUPS);

You can't, AFAICT.

I had to delete everything in $HOME to do with a previous HPLIP

to v2.7.10.  There were significant changes in the way it all worked,
which caused me problems.
