HP Laserjet 1018 1020 Install and Firmware upgrade

Nagyon sokat kellett szívnom ezzel két nyomtatóval, mire rájöttem, hogy miért nem nyomtat, annak ellenére, hogy minden rendszervisszajelzés szerint hibátlanul folyik a nyomtatás. A teljes történet itt. Az install folyamat pedig lejjebb tekinthető meg annak aki szintén hasonló cipőben utazik mint én.

$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ cd foo2zjs

(Optional) Uninstall:
$ su OR $ sudo make uninstall
# make uninstall

$ make

Get extra files from the web, such as .ICM profiles (for
color correction) and firmware for HP 1000/1005 printers:
$ ./getweb 2430 # Get Minolta 2430 DL .ICM files
$ ./getweb 2300 # Get Minolta 2300 DL .ICM files
$ ./getweb 2200 # Get Minolta 2200 DL .ICM files
$ ./getweb cpwl # Get Minolta Color PageWorks/Pro L .ICM files

$ ./getweb 1020 # Get HP LaserJet 1020 firmware file
$ ./getweb 1018 # Get HP LaserJet 1018 firmware file
$ ./getweb 1005 # Get HP LaserJet 1005 firmware file
$ ./getweb 1000 # Get HP LaserJet 1000 firmware file

Install driver, foomatic XML files, PPD files, and extra files:
$ su OR $ sudo make install
# make install

(Optional) Install hotplug (for HP LJ 1000/1005/1018/1020):
$ su OR $ sudo make install-hotplug
# make install-hotplug

If you use CUPS to manage your printers, you must restart cupsd:
# make cups OR $ sudo make cups

Create printers (Redhat 7.2/7.3/8.0/9.0, Fedora Core 1/2/3/4):
# printconf-gui
Create at least one queue for monochrome, and another queue
for color printing. Create the queues, then edit them and
set the „device options” as desired.

For a networked Minolta/QMS 2300 DL, I used a „Queue Type”
of „Unix Printer (LPD)”, and set the „Server” to the IP address
of the printer, and the „Queue” to „lp”.

Create printers (Mandrake)
# printerdrake

Create printers (Suse 10.0)
# yast2 printer

Create printers (Ubuntu)
$ sudo gnome-cups-manager

NOTE: to edit a queue hit „Properties” (click right mouse button).

Create printers (Debian)
On Debian, I’m told that you should install CUPS from dselect,
then install the foo2zjs driver. Then, connect to:
And configure printer (HP example shown) to:
HP LaserJet 1000, Foomatic + foo2zjs (en)
Then edit „Manage Printers->Configure Printer” to suit you,
such as „Page Size” or „Color Mode”.

Install build-essential FIRST:
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential
$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ sudo make uninstall
$ make
$ ./getweb 1020
OR other printer
$ sudo make install install-hotplug cups

Use the network interface if you can. These printers understand Unix
LPD printer server protocol. So when setting up the printer queue,
you can select „UNIX Printer (lpd queue)”, set the lpd queue name to
„lp” (arbitrary), and set the „Server” to the IP address of the

These printers also understand several other printer server protocols,
such as JetDirect and IPP, but I have not tried them. In any case,
I’m not aware of any advantages of using them over LPD.

The USB interface on this printer will work if your printer is at
firmware revision 2.55 or later. Mine was not, but I was able to
get this firmware from the Konica Minolta Europe web site. The USA
site doesn’t have it. Upgrading the firmware on your printer can
be dangerous and might turn your printer into a paperweight, so I do
not recommend it unless you need USB and are a computer expert. To
get the v2.55 firmware upgrade, try:
./getweb 2300dl_fw

HP LASERJET 1000/1005/1020 NOTES
These printers need their firmware downloaded to them every time they
are powered up.

On Linux with USB connected printer:
If you are running Linux and the printer is connected via USB, you
can arrange for the firmware to be automatically downloaded to the
printer by performing one more installation step:

# make install-hotplug

On another OS or with a parallel port connected printer:

You must send a firmware file to the printer each time you power it
up. If you downloaded the extra files for the HP above, a typical
command line to load the firmware would be:

cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl > /dev/usb/lp0
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1005.dl > /dev/usb/lp0
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1020.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

NOTE: The original HP files are named ‘*.img’. Sometimes HP supplies
these files ready-to-download to the printer, sometimes they are raw
ARM executables and need to have a special header added to them before
they can be downloaded. The „make install” step will use the supplied
„arm2hpdl” program to automatically detect which kind of file they are
and convert them (if needed) to the downloadable ‘*.dl’ format.

Please read the detailed installation instructions by Clint Morgan
in the file INSTALL.osx.

You need the following packages before you start the „make install”:
# pkg_add -r ghostscript-gnu
# pkg_add -r cups
# pkg_add -r foomatic-db
# pkg_add -r foomatic-filters

Use „gmake” instead of „make”.

Ghostscript has a problem with ICM files and 64-bit gcc. It causes a
segfault with km2430_2.icm. So don’t select that one.

If you would like to use the 2-up/4-up capability, then you need to
get and install Angus Duggan’s excellent psutils package. You can
find the source code for psutils here:


Or an RPM here:


This will uninstall everything from your system.

$ su
# make uninstall

$ sudo
# lpoptions -o media=A4
# lpoptions -o media=Letter
