Unhappy help to install hp laserjet P1007 in fedora 8

i am in a problem. I tried to install HP laserjet P1007 printer in my fedora 8 desktop. i followed these instructions:

yum -y install gcc*

wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz

tar zxvf foo2zjs.tar.gz
cd foo2zjs

[root@arnab~]# make
[root@arnab~]# make install
[root@arnab~]# make install-hotplug

$ ./getweb 1005
$ ./getweb 1006
$ ./getweb 1007
$ ./getweb 1008


Then i found the printer and add it. But the problem is when i tried to try to print a test page, it shows "job1 submitted".....that's all. No page gets printed. if i try once more, it shows "job2 submitted" but again no results. i cant also see all the submitted jobs.

please suggest me to make my printer workable. pls help me out......

This is the driver that supports the HP Laserjet 1007.


You will find instructions on that site on how to install, configure etc.

I'd had the same problems

I just followed the instructions on this post:

For the detailed INSTALL file goto:
it's really thorough.
