It took me a while to figure it out. But I found that it worked if I set
it up with the device setting as 'Internet Printing Protocol (http)' and
the url as http://oak:631/printers/PhotoSmart-C3100 (oak is my
computer's hostname and PhotoSmart-C3100 is the name of my printer). Go
to http://localhost:631/printers/ to see your printers and their status.

Plain IPP didn't seem to work though. And also I haven't checked to see
what the print quality is like, all I know is that it does print.
