Hello,

yes, I removed toner strip and I got dirty :)

Does it need to upload firmware inj teh printer.
I have HP 1020 on one machine and during boot process it uploads firmware which is noticeable. BUt I do not see such activity during the boot process, simply said, printer is silent and it does not react.

My USB in Yast shows that printer is there.
Some permissions issue?

Firmware is not getting loaded.

Do this:

$ make
$ ./getweb P1006
# make install
# make install-hotplug
then power-cycle the printer.

Then, do this...
$ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0
And...
# grep foo2 /var/log/messages

hello,

I have done procedure as you requested and it seems to me that it is OK Now.
here it is part from /var/log....
/etc/hotplug/usb/hpljP1006: foo2zjs: ...read foo2zjs installation instructions and run ./getweb P1006
/etc/hotplug/usb/hpljP1006: foo2zjs: Missing HP LaserJet P1006 firmware file/usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1006.dl

/etc/hotplug/usb/hpljP1006: foo2zjs: loading HP LaserJet P1006 firmware /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1006.dl to /dev/usb/lp0 ...
/etc/hotplug/usb/hpljP1006: foo2zjs: ... download successful.

I remember that I have done that and that .img file was downloaded. No idea why it was not uploaded to printer. I have HP1020 on other machine and firmware was uploaded normally always. Maybe some strange USB thing.
It seems to me that 600X600 is problematic because when I print on that resolution , printout is very bleak.

if you have any idea why it is bleak please let me know.

best wishes,
Vedran
