'hp-makeuri' fails to find my network printer

Solution: 
  1. Determine the IP address of your printer by printing out the network configuration page (or if you know it or can determine it in another way)
  2. Run:
$ hp-makeuri <ip-address>

For example:

$ hp-makeuri 192.168.1.1
  1. This will result in a device URI printed to the console. For example:
hp:/net/Officejet_9100_series?ip=192.168.1.1
  1. Copy this device URI
  2. Open the CUPS UI:
http://localhost:631

(or YasT, etc) and install the printer by pasting the generated URI.
