hplip 3.17.7 - Driver missing

C.
Hi there!

I hope this is the proper way to ask this question. I am using OpenBSD
just for a couple of weeks now.

I am running OpenBSD-6.2 and installed hplip on my system using
pkg_add(1):

hiberno:~$ pkg_info | grep hplip
hplip-3.17.7p0      HP Linux Imaging and Printing
hplip-common-3.17.7p0 HPLIP applications common files

In the office, we have a HP PageWide Pro MFP 477dw. According to [1],
the driver for this printer should be part of hiplip since 3.16.3.
However, I cannot find the printer in the list of drivers when adding
the printer using the CUPS webinterface.

If I need to provide more information on this matter or can do anything
to resolve it, I'd happily do so. However, I am lost right now. Maybe
you, as maintainer of this port, have an idea what could be the reason
for the driver missing?

Kind regards
Christian

The hpijs package includes PPD files for the 477:

hpijs-3.17.7p0:print/hplip,-hpijs:/usr/local/share/foomatic/db/source/PPD/HP/hp-color_laserjet_pro_mfp_m477-ps.ppd.gz
hpijs-3.17.7p0:print/hplip,-hpijs:/usr/local/share/foomatic/db/source/PPD/HP/hp-color_laserjet_pro_mfp_m477d-ps.ppd.gz
hpijs-3.17.7p0:print/hplip,-hpijs:/usr/local/share/foomatic/db/source/PPD/HP/hp-pagewide_pro_477_mfp-ps.ppd.gz
