HP laserjet 1000

Recommended Posts

I have a HP LaserJet 1000 printer. With Mandrakelinux 10.0 official there was no problem at all, but after 10.1 Official installation printer wont print any more. Installation finds the printer, installs it (say that I have to copy sihp1000.img to /etc/printers/, but linuxprinting.org again says that with latest driver foo2zjs it is not needed any more.) well I want to print test page from kde's printer manager but nothing happens, the job stays in the list of jobs?

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS :banana:

IT WORKS IT WORKS

Thanks GOD

-----------------------------------------------------------

I could finally fix my HP printer to work under mandrake 10.1

I did many steps so I don't know which one of those steps fixed my printer

So you I will tell you all of them

 

1-I removed the following packages with rpmdrake

cups

cups-common

cups-drivers

foomatic-db

 

2-I removed the following packages

foomatic-db-engine

foomatic-filters

NOTE:DON'T REMOVE THEM FROM RPMDRAKE

To reomve the last 2 packages do the following

open consol

type su

enter your root pasword

type rpm -e --nodeps packagename

 

3- I installed the oolder version of the previous packages (older versions found in mandrake 10 CD1)

4- I restarted my computer

5- Open Start-->System-->Configuration-->Configure your computer

6- from the hardware section open printers

7- remove your ho printer from there

8- shutdown your PC

9- Put your printer in another USB port

10- Turn on your PC and open

Start-->System-->Configuration-->Configure your computer again

goto printer section

It will tell you that he found a new printer called hp click ok

make sure that your printer is enabled

then print your first test page

 

Enjoy

 

Note:May be you don't need to make all of this steps to get your printer work

Maybe changing your USB port is enough

If any body has a better solution please post it here
