    Exclamation No driver for HP LaserJet P1006 printer ?

    I can't make work my HP LaserJet P1006 printer on USB with OpenSUSE.

    It's being detected as usb://HP/LaserJet P1006 but there is no specific driver for it.
    I try to use the generic HP LaserJet driver but didn't work.
    There is no driver for P1005 model, either.

    Someone had the same problem here: Cups Printer Driver Incompatibility Hp Laserjet P1006 Printer

    Any ideas?

    Default the driver

    Thank you for the links.

    It's quite difficult to install the way described there (for example, when I type
    Code:
    make
    nothing happend (bash: make: command not found)

    I downloaded the driver foo2zjs.tar.gz and tried to install it by YaST. It seemed to install OK, but still no printing.

    When you want to build something by using make, etc. you should install make, etc. first. Use YaST and install at least make, gcc. When it is a kernel module you try to generate you need kernel-source.

    Friends, I have just bought this device and tried to make it work on OpenSUSE 11.2 and 11.0.

    On 11.0 it works fine with HPLIP(there are proper drivers) and everything is fine.
    The printer is not detected properly via USB, so simple USB setup fails.

    On 11.2 the system autodetects the printer and sets it up, but the setup is broken.
    It detects both USB and HPLIP connection, but when I start printing (with a proper driver) CUPS webinterface says "/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip-hplip failed" (for HPLIP), the printer stops then.
    What is wrong here?

    P.S.
    I have homeserver with OS 11.0, where the printer works with HPLIP
    On the client PCs there is OS 11.2, and the printer doesn't work on it.
    I want to print over network.

    And to prove that this scheme works, I have another printer HP photosmart C5283 working perfectly and had Samsung ML1520 working, until it broke down.

    Thank you!

    The problem is obviously in OS 11.2 support. I've made several tests, and found out that the printer perfectly works as local printer from 11.0 and as network printer from Vista... But it doesn't work from 11.2: neither as local USB printer, nor as network printer, with old and new ppd's.

    Any ideas?

    I have tried upgrading CUPS and downgrading HPLIP (with drivers). Nothing helped.

    BTW, when I print over the network from OS 11.2, the CUPS server (on 11.0) marks the job as "completed", when in fact it is not. Printer is just idling - no errors, no "wakeups" - nothing.
