HP1000 Using foo2zjs
Posted by: jpat100 ()

I am using Linux 8.0 dual booted with Windows XP :( and I have managed to load FOO2ZJS OK and now have HP1000 as an option in the driver list in the Linux printer GUI, but I can still not get anything to print. I have tried many different printer configurations, but the HP1000 still just sits there - no printing. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Do you do:
# make install-hotplug
??????

What does this say:
# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

Hi -

I did the make install-hotplug and it seemed to work OK

For the command you said to try, I got:

MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:hp LaserJet 1000;CMD:ZJS;CLS:PRINTER;DES:hp LaserJet 1000;FWVER:20011207;

Thanks for helping.

Do this from foo2zjs directory:

$ foo2zjs-wrapper -P testpage.ps > xxx
$ su
# cp xxx /dev/usb/lp0

Did that work?

If so, then its a CUPS problem with specifying /dev/usb/lp0. Do this:

# grep DeviceURI /etc/cups/printers.conf
DeviceURI usb:/dev/usb/lp0

What does that say?

Hi -

The first command printed a sheet with a dark band at the top.

The second one gave the response you indicated.

Thanks!

Hi -

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you (I am in the middle of moving). These commands print a "Red Hat Printconf US Letter PostScript Test Page" OK. I have managed to get the printer working except for the printing gui, which will still not print a test page no matter how I set it up. Thanks!

I would say put CUPS in debug mode (in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf: LogLevel debug), then restart cupsd (make cups), then print and post
your /var/log/cups/error_log.
