Two Problems Hp Laserjet 1018 [ubuntu 8.10]

Hi Rick, for first thing excuse me for my english and if I'm allowed to ask you, but I have already called on dozens of forums but anybody know give me an answer.

My name is Giorgio, I'm a italian boy and I have a printer HP Laserjet 1018 that I use daily on my office; I use ubuntu linux from January 2007, now I installed ubuntu 8.10.

I use your driver foo2zjs and it works perfectly, I have only two problems:

1. If I turn on the PC and printer together all ok, but if I turn on the PC and turn on the printer at a later time, the printer is properly "awake" from the hotplug, but if I send jobs to print it
does not print. Why? There's a solution?

2. The printer hp LaserJet 1018 supports a print server? I mean Protocols LPD or HP JectDirect or others; I have given a print server, I tried to connect the printer but there isn't sign of life and nobody has been able to tell me if my printer support this protocols.

I hope to hear soon

Thank you very much and excuse the trouble.

1. Works fine here on Fedora 10. Power down, up, down, up, etc. Every time it downloads the firmware (orange light blinks for 5 seconds or so).
    Did you do:
      $ wget ...
      $ tar ...
      $ cd foo2zjs
      $ make
      $ ./getweb 1018
      $ sudo make install install-hotplug
I would check with your distro, or switch distros.

2. Network Print Server

1. Yes also in ubuntu whenever power down, up, ecc... the printer downloads the firmware and orange light winkle but it sometimes does not print and gnome disable the printer....is this normal?

2.But ipp is the print on lan/network...not with a router with a usb port in share, so I must not turn on a pc dedicated; I should use LPD protocol...
Hp laserjet 1018 supports this protocol?

Thank you very much

1. CUPS problem, then.

2. No. Router "print servers" are not supported. Use a genuine computer running linux.
