Hello, has anyone had luck with these new compact laser printers from HP, the P1006 in particular? I haven't unearthed much technical data, save that that the P1000 and P1500 series all seem to use the same drivers, and they also load their firmware from the host computer.
Using Kubuntu Gutsy, and have removed the version of foo2zjs that Ubuntu provides and installed a fresh copy per the instructions here, also grabbed the various HP firmwares in hopes I'd find a similar-enough model (doesn't work). It does work great with Mac OS X 10.3, even as a shared network printer hanging off my Airport Extreme base station, and it's visible at 192.168.1.1:9100.
Just a quick note before I get some sleep: The P1006 is working with the revised drivers! I don't know why I had to restart my (original white Hershey Kiss) Airport Extreme base station a couple of times: The printer dropped out of sight a couple of times until I did. But the revised XQX driver seems to be working both with direct USB connection and as a JetDirect printer hanging off the Airport on port 9100. Will give it a more thorough workout in the following days. Very psyched right now.
