I don't know scientific linux but guess that your driver is already installed.

Make sure the cupsd daemon is running and your printer plugged in then type the address http://localhost:631 and install your printer.

The model number Hp Laserjet 1020.

Method 1:
You may refer to the below links and use the troubleshooters. Check if it lists and helps resolve any issues: Open the Printer troubleshooter:
Hp Support & Downloads

Method 2:
You may check if you have the latest drivers installed for the device. You may refer to the below link for getting the latest drivers and check –

Good Luck.

It should not be necessary to install anything other than what is supplied thru the package manager--eg packages such as HPLIP and Gutenprint should be there.

Everything you need might already be installed---as already mentioned, just go to localhost:631 and then add the printer.
