Support for LaserJet Pro MFP M127FW?

Hello,
I have installed the driver per the website. However I was unable to find a .ppd for the M127FW:
http://www.pcworld.com/product/1401460/hp-laserjet-pro-mfp-m127fw-laser-multifunction-printer.html

I have tried to use the P1102 ppd which does make the printer turn on, but results in printing nothing but a few blurred black lines all over instead of a test page via CUPS web interface.

Any ideas on how to make this printer work?

Thanks.

It is a bonafide Postscript printer. No drivers are needed!

Hello,
Thanks for responding.
Unfortunately hp-lip package says a firmware is needed and refuses to print, and CUPS "Generic PostScript" printer .ppd does nothing.

Any ideas on another .ppd I could try?'

Edit: Also I'm trying to run this on ARM, so apparently HP claims there's no firmware yet. That's why I was hoping for any other alternatives..

This is what I got using the XP driver. Looks like PDF to me. I only do JBIG printers.
