Downloaded hplip-gui from hp, but it says during setup that it is for Fedora 25 and earlier versions. Will look into sans drivers.

hplip-gui is best installed from the Fedora repository, the fedora maintainers compile it to match the current version of Qt framework shipped with the particular Fedora release. once done, you still get the latest hplip driver for your device as they are downloaded by hplip once the device model is established.

Same problem, now with Fedora 28. without and with hplip-gui scanner only connects to printer when connected via usb. Funny thing is that this does not happen with Ubuntu, using the same version of hplip. Actually I did not have to install hplip-gui and both the printer and simple scan work. Why would simple scan work on one system and not the other.
