HP Laserjet 1018 - Installed, but won't print [MacOSX]

The following are the files that I downloaded and installed:

In order:
Foomatic-RIP (224KB)
gplgs-8.61-ub.dmg (22.4 MB)
foo2zjs-1.1-UB.dmg

I installed several times in that order to ensure I didn't miss anything. I dragged and dropped'em all in one folder too just in case it makes any difference.

I also 'sihp1018.dl' in the same folder. I've named this folder 'Printer'.

Anyway, the printer sends the commands properly and it says 'sending data' and 'printing'. Then the job disappears assuming that it's done, but nothing comes out of the printer.

I also tried setting up the printer thru CUPS (localhost:681). I deleted the printer that I initially installed 'HP LaserJet 1018' and tried using 'Main' created via CUPS.

No luck at all.



I read on another forum that you're supposed to send 'sihp1018.dl' file to the terminal or something everytime you boot your computer. I've tried, but I believe it said its a bad/unknown command.

Did you read "INSTALL.osx"?

Does that mean members on this forum will not be helping?

I thought I installed foo2zjs driver, so this might be the place to ask for help.
