Ubuntu 8.04 - Installation of HP 1020 printer

After installing HP 1020 by using system->administration->Printing
I couldn't use it to print anything.

By searching on internet, I got the way to install HP 1020 printer properly.

- Download file foo2zjs.tar.gz, unzip it:

$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz

$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz

$ cd foo2zjs

$ sudo make uninstall


$ sudo make

Download file from web for HP 1020:
$ ./getweb 1020


# sudo make install

Install program for hotplug:

# make install-hotplug

This step must be done: unplug the printer and then plug it, let your computer searching for your printer. (remember to unplug and plug your printer once with the printer powered, you will see your printer has reaction.)

If you use CUPS to manage your printers, you must restart cupsd:

$ sudo make cups


delete the original printer, add a new printer. when there are two printer drivers are displayed, remember to select the recommended one

ok,enjoy it.
