Yes, I normally set up printer queues via the browser interface and I 
found that my Deskjet for instance was not recognized by hp-toolbox so 
had to login as root and use hp-setup and find the printer manually; by 
specifying the USB bus:device address, and then giving the printer a 
different name from that used in CUPS.  lpstat -a shows two queues for 
the same printer.
