NOTES

1. If no serial number, USB ID, IP, or device node is specified, the USB and parallel busses will be probed for devices.

$ hp-setup --auto 003:011

(Note: You may have to run 'lsusb' from /sbin or another location. Use '$ locate lsusb' to determine this.)

3. Parameters -a, -f, -p, or -t are not valid in GUI (-u) mode.
