If you have the symptom that having installed the HP 1020 using the foo2zjs driver the print job disappears and no printing takes place - then the issue is that the firmware file has not been sent to the printer.

You must use hotplug and udev rules to sense when the printer is connected to usb - and when it is turned on - to send the firmware patch to the printer.

Thankyou mauritroviano - your post enabled me to get the hotplug udev scripts going - just need to follow the instructions very carefully - I think the ln -s files are the wrong way around though - but other than that worked perfectly.

PostPosted: Sat 01 May 2010, 17:01    Post subject: Manually loading firmware?  

Ok, I may be wrong about causality, as I new to any linux, but the solution works.

I had a similar problem in Puppeee (Puppy for EEE pc) - it did not automatically send firmware to HP Laserjet 1000. The drivers for the printer had been installed using foo2zjs-i486.pet, still, no printing could be done.

Manually loading HP Laserjet 1000 firmware:

1. Turn on Printer, PC, plug in USB cable.
2. Type in console:
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl > /dev/usb/lp0
(If successful, the printer will make some sound).
3. Print.

I made a shell script from 2 step, so there is little trouble printing.

If you start printing before loading firmware, then you will not be able to load firmware. Unplug USB, cancel all jobs in CUPS, plug in USB and repeat from step 1.

How could I make the process automatic, on boot?

Does Puppeee have a /root/Startup folder? If so, put your script there.

HP Laserjet 1020 has worked for me with most puppies with this:
http://www.datafilehost.com/download-bf13c069.html

it is foo2xxx package which creates hotplugin folder and feeds firmware to printer without need to use any scripts.

Will this work with a HP LaserJet P1006?

What about a HP Photosmart C4480?

For your HP P1006, try Patriot's foo2xxx_r220909-0.0 (zjs/xqx/slx/oak/hp/xxx) package from here. Get Item #13.

Your Photosmart C4480 is included in the hpijs-3.10.2-dynppd.pet from here.
