Jeez. Didn't you follow the instructions?

Do this:

Power down and up the printer.
$ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0
$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2zjs-wrapper -P -r600x600 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0

Did it print?

That is WRONG. "hp:<whatever>" is for closed source drivers based on hplib.

You should use:
    usb://HP/LaserJet%201000
OR
    usb:/dev/usb/lp0

HP1020 screenshot - replace with 1000

From the INSTALL file, which you should have read:
USB NOTES
---------
    If you are using the USB port, then the URI should be:
        usb://Samsung/CLP-310%20Series
        usb://Samsung/CLP-310%20Series
        usb://HP/Color%20LaserJet%20CP1215
        usb://HP/Color%20LaserJet%202600n
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201000
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201005
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201018
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201020
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1005
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1006
        usb://HP/LaserJet%20P1505
    OR
        usb:/dev/usb/lp0
        usb:/dev/usb/lp1

    Don't use hp://<whatever> because that is for hplib (a closed source
    driver).
