View Full Version : HP Laserjet 1000 driver
1st April 2009, 02:13 AM
Any suggestion how to get a driver for HP Laserjet 1000 for Fedora 11 beta?
I downloaded HPLIP and said I needed to install gcc manually. Tried to install but got error msg of Bad Signature to gpk-application and force install didn't work. Any suggestions?
My other HP Deskjet drivers installed just fine without going to HPLIP.

I downloaded HPLIP and said I needed to install gcc manually.Hello kirk202,
Instead of compiling hplip from source, you can try the version in the Fedora repo.su
yum install hplip
My other HP Deskjet drivers installed just fine without going to HPLIP.Then another thing to try is yum installing only the hpijs driver package. After that, maybe you can configure your printer using the gnome printer configuration utility. It's what I do nowadays. I find the hplip package itself and the hp-setup GUI to be redundant and unnecessary. But that hplip thing supports over a thousand HP printer models, so I can't know whether or not you can do that, too. It sure won't hurt to try. But no promises.
P.S.: The gcc thing probably means that you did not install the packages necessary for compiling source code. You can still install them after-the-fact. I would try installing the package group "Development Tools". Then install the kernel-devel and kernel-headers for your kernel.su
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
yum install kernel-devel
yum install kernel-headers

I did yum install and got the driver - the test page says its being processed but it never reaches the printer. I deleted the printer and added it again as a new printer but still not working. My HP 1210 and photosmart 770 work fine. My laserjet 1000 is a problem for every kernel update. I'd just reinstall in F10 and it would work.
I'll play with it and if I can discover the problem I'll post the solution here.

Okay. I just looked at the information for the Laserjet 1000 in "Supported Printers" at hplipopensource.com. It is supported, but it had this to say about a plugin which may be at the bottom of your troubles...
This printer REQUIRES a downloadable driver plug-in. Use hp-setup to install the printer, and to download and install the plug-in. In general, required driver plugins are required for printing support. Driver plug-ins are released under a proprietary (non-open) license and are not part of the HPLIP tarball release.
It also had this to say about its support level. But it says the same thing about my Deskjet 3820 which works fine with the hpijs driver...
The HP product has reached the end of support life, meaning the HPLIP solution is considered “As-is”. No further HPLIP code changes will be implemented by HP.
