I have an hplaserjet 1020 and the printer doesn't print any pages even though the printer status says it has completed its job. Also, I have already installed the hplibsupport in an attempt to resolve this issue but even that doesn't seem to work.

There's a post here (hplaserjet 1020) about installing that printer in ubuntu.

Theres also a walk-through here: http://www.linuxhaxor.net/2008/01/10/installing-hp-laserjet-1020-on-ubuntu/
i stumbled across this a little while back when i was looking for info on an HP 1030 Inkjet that was giving me trouble. Hopefully, this info is helpful!

I followed the intructions for the link Afarris gave me and it works. However, do I have to type in "sudo make install install-hotplug cups" every single time I want to print?

have you installed the printer driver? Read more here: http://hplip.sourceforge.net/downloads.html
