I've been printing with an hp for a little while now, and in my system
configuration I have this:

(service cups-service-type
          (web-interface? #t)
           (list cups-filters hplip))))

Maybe you've already done that, but I'm just guessing based on what you

I've found that with that configuration, all of hplip's ppd files show
up when adding the printer via the web interface (which is how I added
my printer). hp-setup also seems to work ok, and will auto-detect your
ppd file, but can't print out the test page.

Anyway, I hope that helps.
