Installation on Slackware14 [solved]

As I tried to instal printer driver for hp_laserjet_1020 using hp-setup, after downloading and installing the driver, I got the error:
No appropriate print PPD file found for model hp_laserjet_1020
After a few googling, I found a post that offered to use foo2zjs.
I followed the instructions in that message. But still have previous error.
What is your offer to add the printer?

Please follow all instructions on my page...

From the INSTALL file (you read it, right?)
Unpack:
    $ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ cd foo2zjs

Compile:
    $ make    

Get extra files from the web, such as .ICM profiles (for color correction)
and firmware.  Select the model number for your printer:
    $ ./getweb 1020     # Get HP LaserJet 1020 firmware file

Install driver, foomatic XML files, PPD files, and extra files:
    $ su                OR      $ sudo make install
    # make install

Install hotplug (for HP LJ 1000/1005/1018/1020/P100[5678]/P1505):
    $ su                OR      $ sudo make install-hotplug
    # make install-hotplug

    Unplug and re-plug the USB printer    

If you are using the USB port, then the URI should be:
        file:/dev/usb/lp0       OR      usb:/dev/usb/lp0
        file:/dev/usb/lp1       OR      usb:/dev/usb/lp1
    OR
        usb://HP/LaserJet%201020

    Don't use hp://<whatever> because that is for hplip (a closed source,
    proprietary driver).
Don't use hp-setup, as that is proprietary software!!!

Go down to the "Ready ..." screenshot. You should see, for example:

Device URI: usb://HP/LaserJet%201020
