Installing foo2zjs without internet access
Posted by: john.wieler ()

Hello all, I'm wondering how to install foo2zjs without having internet access. Here's the scoop:

I'm setting up an HP1018 on an older machine running Xubuntu 7.04. Problem is, the machine is sitting off in the bush in Zambia, they barely have electricity, no phone lines and no internet access. Is there some way of doing the installation without internet access? Any ideas?

Much obliged,

John

Don't need to be on line to install it.
You can download the package and copy it to a USB stick or a flopy diskette and then take it where its needeed, and simply proceed with the installation.

Does downloading and transferring foozjs to install on a Linux without Internet work if the HP printer e.g. P1006 requires the proprietary HP plug-n?
