I've used this for my HP1020 http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/ and it works fine. Model 1018 is also listed.

Thanks to both of you. I have successfully i installed foo2zjs, after that i have configured the printer as given in that foo2zjs site and make it as default printer. Now in the print option of any document i can see LaserJet 1018 option but when i try to print it , nothing is printed out.The print job is paused.I could not find out what is the problem can anybody please help me in this problem ?

What does the webinterface say about the printer?

You can always bump up the log level, restart cups
and have a look at the cups error_log.


Cheers,
Tink

How to bump up the log level ? How to restart cups ?

Besides when i restart the computer i see this statement while booting:

Code:

drivers/usb/usblpc.c:usblp0: failed reading printer status.
What does it mean ?

locate cups.conf, find the line
LogLevel xxxx
and change xxx to debug

Restart: service cups restart (or similar).

Thank you verymuch Tinkster and sorry for the late reply.I found that file in

Code:

./etc/dbus-1/system.d/cups.conf

Code:


<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN" "http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd">
<busconfig>
  <!-- Only root can send this message -->
  <policy user="root">

  </policy>

  <!-- Allow any connection to receive the message -->

My apologies - the files name is actually cupsd.conf, not cups.conf.

biplabbijay 04-12-2010 07:40 AM

Thanks Tinkster .the Problem is solved. But i don't have to modify cupsd.conf. Only i have to install the hot plug.
Thank you verymuch.

Biplab.
