Smile I need a driver for a HP Laserjet 1020 printer


I need a driver for a HP Laserjet !020 Printer to work with Fedora 9. I have tried what fedora 9 recommends but that doesn't work. I went to HP website and the only drivers I found were for fedora 15 and 16 they don't work. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I may find a compatible driver. Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for all that have responed to this post. I have my printer up and running because of your help. Thank you so much. I feel very welcome in this community.

I solved my hp Laserjet 1020

I used the hp-setup command and updated my firmware. I tried to install new driver but they would not work until I updated the firmwareThen the driver could communicate with the printer. I have had the printer since May 2006. Thanks for everyone's help.
