    Focal Fossa HP Laserjet 1020 not working

    Unable to install HP Laserjet 1020 after installing Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa. Searched everywhere and found that HP has no driver for Focal Fossa. foo2zjs driver is also not working. Is there any way to make my HP Laserjet 1020 to work on 20.04 or I need to switch the operating system?

    You need to install hplip:

    Code:
    sudo apt install hplip-gui
    That IS the driver.

    That printer used to also need a plugin but installing that plug in was another step in the hplip installation process.

    This printer is supported by HP. You can check out supported printers here. If you have used hplip-gui to install the printer and it sees it but then can't communicate with it then it could be a problem with a file called ippusbxd. I have fixed 2 printers and one scanner all on Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu, by removing this file. You could try removing the file with sudo apt-get -y purge ippusbxd. Normal warnings apply about backups etc. but I have had no issue. Interestingly this issue is not present in Ubuntu 20.10.
