Have you disabled ulpt in the kernel, and are you using libusb (default
I think).   By default, NetBSD has a driver for printers that's write
only and good for basic printers, but I think hplip really needs to talk
bidirectionally and more complicated.

I have a Laserjet 1320, which is older and simpler (B&W laser, circa
2006), and it prints fine with cups15.

Are you able to print ok with cups15, and it's just cups-2 that doesn't

turn up debugging in the cups config file and look at /var/log/cups/*.
