From INSTALL.osx:
7) If HP LaserJet 10xx, you must send a firmware file to the printer *each time*
   you power it up:

    $ lp -oraw /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl

thanks for the reply.

sorry, but i'm a real noob so you're going to have to break it down for me a bit more in detail...

where do i find this INSTALL.osx?
and i just type $ lp -oraw /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl in there?

How do you install this without reading INSTALL.osx?

what do you mean?

i downloaded the three files from the site
and then just unpacked them all..
and the terminal popped up then i pressed ctrl+c, which gave me a whole list of names of printers...
then i typed 4 and it seemed like it downloaded the driver..

but i don't know of this INSTALL.osx file you're talking about..

Sorry, you have installed a 3RD PARTY version. There is no support for this. You must install using the directions on my site:

fink is not available for Leopard.
the downloads on that site only usable in 10.4 OS not 10.5
