    HP LaserJet P1005: install ok, no printing output though

    Just in case some of you have had this problem, after about 5 hours found the solution at:

    http://forums.linux-foundation.org/read.php?20,4643

    Scroll down to post by JuanC, in particular note

    " ...
    5. Install
    sudo make install

    6. Turn off the printer. Then turn it on.

    7. Upload firmware to the printer
    cat /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1005.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

    The printer's LED should show a red light for some seconds. Wait until it becames green again.


    8. Restart spooler
    make cups

    9. Now configre the printer (with the cups web interface,or whatever method). Make sure you select the proper driver.

    10. Test it. It should work."

    works nicely!

    Thanks for that Ankersman.
    I'm having one little problem though:

    This is the output from doing the cat in step 7:

    bash: /dev/usb/lp0: Permission denied


    Yes I switched it off and on again. I also tried it when it was switched off but of course the usb device wasnt found then. But at least I know its looking in the right place.

    Any ideas how I can get permission? Tried with sudo too, btw.

    Re: HP LaserJet P1005: install ok, no printing output though

    Hi all, I fixed my problems, just had to tweak a couple of things. End result: My HP LaserJet P1005 is working perfectly on my Hardy installation, thanks to Ankersman's direction, and JuanC's of course!

    Here's what I had to add:

    After switching the power back on, I had to change ownership of lp0:

    Code:
    sudo chown damien /dev/usb/lp0
    (substitute your userName in place of "damien", of course)
    (Note: if you switch the printer off during the install process, you will have to repeat the chown command after turning it back on, as it wont remember.)

    Then did the cat /usr/share/foo2xqx/firmware/sihpP1005.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

    Also when making cups, had to do it with sudo.

    Code:
    sudo make cups
    It also helps to make sure you're in the right directory when youre trying to do a make! (ie the one where you unzipped all your foo2zjs files.)
    EDIT: And make sure you've got ALL the orange packaging material removed - it turns up in some surprising places! If you can, run the little demo on the install CD, it shows you where everything is. I missed one spot, and the red light just kept flashing until I found the offending packaging.

    Anyway, obviously I'm still a Linux noob, but if there's others like me trying to install one of these, that might help fill in the missing blanks. Hope it helps someone, would be nice to give back to this community in some small way

    I had same proplem that printer didn't do nothing. But it was recognised by Kubuntu 8.10.


    Solved by:

    "sudo hp-setup" and press enter untill install is done


    hp-setup will update firmware..
    Downloading firmware to device hp:/usb/HP_LaserJet_P1005?serial=BC0JV5J...
    Firmware download successful.

    After installing HPLIP, you bust out the command

    sudo hp-setup

    Printer is now printing. And it feels goooood baby. It feels REAL good.

    How do i know which driver to pick? I have several of them
    I installed the foo2zjs driver

    EDIT: Never mind, I installed the wrong printerdriver, i choose 1005 without P, with the right one it's working

    Re: HP LaserJet P1005: install ok, no printing output though

    Hi Guys,

    I've installed UBUNTU 11.10 recently and tried to install my HP 1005.

    Here is what I found on the HP support site :
    Ubuntu 11.04 supplies HPLIP 3.11.5 and it does support your printer.

    As the version of HPLIP supplied with your operating system supports your printer, you may continue to use that version of HPLIP.


    I performed the installation but the printer does not have an output, the message from HPLIP device status is output job completed...but nothing on paper though
    Any ideas?
    Thank you in advance!

    I've had the exact same issue with my HP LaserJet 1005 und Ubuntu 12.04.

    Calling
    sudo hp-setup
    also solved it for me. It just wasn't working with the systems printer dialogue.

    Thank you Sammy, following the yellow brick road to happiness
    feels damn good indeed!
