No, because it affects unity as well.

  hp-plugin hangs at invisible sudo prompt after download of plugin

Status in hplip package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After downloading the plugin files with the recommended method and
  accepting the license agreement the installation routine hangs
  (doesn't proceed over multiple hours without any CPU or I/O load)
  after output `Number of files to install: 42` which is likely to be
  caused by a spawned process with the `cmdline`
  `/usr/bin/sudo/usr/bin/pythoninstallPlugin.py` which might request the
  user's `sudo` password which isn't visible for the user (and expected
  to be requested in a dialog anyway).
