When would I want to use HPIJS instead of HPLIP?

Answer: 

There are several possible reasons:

  1. On a server where no GUI is present and only shared printing is desired.
  2. When printing to a SAMBA shared printer (using the CUPS smb: backend, for example).
  3. There is a desire to have the smallest printing system possible.

Most people do NOT need to do this.
