I don't know if this is Ubuntu, Debian or L-Lite developer issue, but as far as possible, during installation the OS should detect the printer and then install things like hplip. Especially for newer users, these little things can be very frustrating, esp. if there are a dozen or so of them after installation. This little one is important because for many people, if they can't print they can't do their work, so they end up not switching over because it's too risky etc..

Hello!

AFAIK, NO OS does this. Besides, programs like that change far too frequently for an OS to keep up with them all.

Instead, HP should include HPLIP were included on the same CD as their Windows Installer. Of course, people misplace CDs all the time, so they will go online to get them anyway...
