Indeed, this is the most straightforward and trouble free way of
getting the printing *and* scanning functions of the device working
with 'hp-setup -i'.

For printing, http://localhost:631/ plus printer-driver-hpcups is
sufficient without hplip installed. Scanning would have to be set up
separately with libsane-hpaio.
