hp laserjet p1005 on slackware 12.1 [solved]

1) I installed the driver following the instructions in the file included in the tar file. 2) I also created a new printer with CUPS 3) I tried a test print, but it was not readable.

I have also hplip installed.
Any ideas?
Thanks Luigi

Did you do:

$ make
$ ./getweb P1005 #IMPORANT!!!
$ su
# make install install-hotplug cups

Power down and up the printer.

# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

???

I removed hplip and removed foo2zjs, reinstalled foo2zjs. This time
usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0 gave the following result

GET_DEVICE_ID string:
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet P1005;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet P1005;

Then I created a printer with CUPS, but the printer doesn't print at all (I powered down and up)

Then I remembered that I hadn't given the following commands (recommended in the install file)

make install-hotplug
make cups

And (Alleluja) I was able to print. Thank you very much.
