Recently I've purchase a 2nd hand laser printer "HP laserjet 1018" from ebay and also the toner cartridges there. I did a research online and find some way to make a HP LaserJet 1018 work on Linux with the driver foo2zjs.
I put the printer connected directly to the computer, and then began the process of installing the driver.
- Downloading the package:
$ Wget http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar-xpzvf foo2zjs.tar.gz
- Going into the driver directory:
$ cd foo2zjs
- Downloading the firmware of the printer:
$. /getweb 1018
$ sudo make install
$ sudo make install-hotplug
Soon after the printer hung up and called again.
I restarted CUPS:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart
Installed and Ready! the HP laserjet 1018 worked perfectly now!~.
