Hi!

no entries
Code:
lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: HP-LaserJet-P1006
device for HP-LaserJet-P1006: hp:/usb/HP_LaserJet_P1006?serial=AB09AJB
HP-LaserJet-P1006 accepting requests since Mon 14 Jšn 2013 23:31:47 CET
printer HP-LaserJet-P1006 is idle.  enabled since Mon 14 Jšn 2013 23:31:47 CET
	ready to print
Any suggestion?

I have a P1005. I use foo2zjs. It's a bit rough on the edges on the install, but you will get working. Read the instructions (README & INSTALL) and use it from source. Don't try a package. It grabs the firmware for you. You need to remove the system-config-printer package and this affects the cups web interface.

How did you install it? When I had an HP, I found that using hp-setup was more reliable than using CUPS or a distro's configuration tool.

You basically have no choice in installing it
tar -xzvf foozjs.tar.gz
cd foozjs
make
./getweb P1006 # grabs firmware
make install
make install-hotplug

and it's done. Don't try a package - it will only end in tears.
