Native solaris printing working

$ pfexec /usr/sbin/print-service -s cups
then configure the printer using http://localhosts:631 in the same way as I did with ubunto. Now I don't need the virtual machine running which is a bonus. I think cups may be a better fit for me at home since I don't have a nameservice running so the benefits of the lp system are very limited.
The bug is 6826086: printer drivers from package SUNWhpijs are not update with HPLIP
