The reason this seems strange is that there is nothing to
differentiate HP photo paper from other photo paper. If it
physically fits in the tray (and is flexible like paper, and has
approximately the right surface), I cannot see any way that a
printer can detect its brand. If HP had invented a way to brand
their paper invisibly I'm sure more people would know about this ...

[HP Deskjet 6940 Printer] "Media sensor detects paper type and
automatically sets print quality to ensure optimal results"

So it does seem possible (especially when the same company makes both
the sensor and the paper).

So, not a linux issue at all, and severely off topic.
