1020 as a windows shared printer [solved, PostScript Emulation]
Posted by: walnut ()

I downloaded and installed per instructions, but my HP 1020 won't print. Before we go any further, the 1020 is hooked up to my wife's XP machine and is shared. I can pick it upon a scan, and it seems to install and function normally on my freespire 1.0.13 but doesn't print.

If it won't work as a shared, would it be better installing directly to my freespire machine and trying to get her to share, or run it off a print server?

Get the wife off Windows and be done with it. My wife and kids (13, 11) use Fedora Core 6 with NO PROBLEMS.

Otherwise, PostScript Emulation - WinXP Procedure

Well, I didn't have to do a PostScript Emulation. Turns out there was something hung in the XP machine's print queue that my wife had printed. My daughter cleared it out today and when I came home the test pages were on my desk.

Thanks, and I sent you a contribution.

Hi,
I will pull up this thread. I have almost the same situation.
HP 1020 shered in LAN on windows xp machine.
I download and installed as in INSTALL step by step instruction.
HP1020 seems to be connected and installed properly, but when trying to print anything, in print jobs error: "network server: '192.168.1.2' is busy, will try in xx seconds" and nothing ...

Any ideas ?
Link with PostScript Emulation is dead (404) :(
