HP LaserJet 10xx on Ubuntu Linux (1000 1005 1018 1020) [Aug. 15th, 2007|11:15 am]


HP Laserjet 10xx (1000 1005 1018 1020 - often erroneously referred to as "winprinters") use foo2zjs on Linux, but dont work on many distros by default. Ubuntu one of them.

foo2zjs site (http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/) recommend use official source from http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz, but it can make hard to update system.

I recommend use this script for make this printer to work.
(Use this script for install needed firmwares for HP LaserJet 10xx. You must be connected to the Internet)

printers="1000 1005 1018 1020"
cd /tmp
for prn in $printers; do
    getweb $prn
    if [ -f $img ]; then
        arm2hpdl $img > $dl
        sudo cp $dl /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/$dl
        rm $img $dl

Turn off/on your printer.
Tested on Ubuntu Feisty 7.04.

1. Create simple text file (for example with "gedit").
2. Put text (see above) into the file and save.
3. Open terminal windows and run: "sh textfile" or "sh /path/to/textfile"

textfile = script :)
