I got the printer setup so that it prints, even wirelessly. What I am unable to do is get it to work with xsane. hp-setup is completely useless. It doesn’t even see my printer. Not on USB. Not on the network, and not wireless. I had to use YaST Printer to set it up. HPLIP is 3.10.5 downloaded directly from the hplip site.

Glad to read the Officejet 6500 is working for you.
I have wireless scanning working on my HP All-In-One Premium C309a with openSUSE-11.2. I use xsane. I used yast to setup (where I believe YaST called hplip’s hp-setup). In my case I simply entered the printer/scanner’s IP address and it worked. I did not insist on YaST/hp-setup having to find the ip itself. Once setup I did not have to setup again.
I don’t recall the USB ID being a factor when I setup my C309a. I did have to go to a manual configuration mode in the hp-setup (as it was not detected upon scan), and enter the ip address. I had a selection of many different devices (as there are many different C309a variants) with 2 different C309a’s to select from. I selected the 2nd one and it worked.
