No driver for HP LaserJet 1018 on Manjaro


After searching high and low for a driver to make a HP LaserJet 1018 work on Manjaro XFCE, it appears that the end line is:
"it does not exist".

If someone here has one please let me know.

Otherwise, i'm giving up on Manjaro or any Arch based distro.

Heading out to www.hplipopensource.com offers a bunch of different compatible distros but not one is Arch based.

Here you go. https://www.openprinting.org/printer...-LaserJet_1018. Debian has a package for it called: printer-driver-foo2zjs I don't know about Manjaro but it seems easy enough to get hold of.

Are you saying Debian is Arch compatible?

Neither Arch or Manjaro are listed here:

No, I'm not. I'm giving you a hint about what a possible package might be called. I am not suggesting you use the Debian package. Your problem is to locate the equivalent arch package. Just do a search of the Arch packages for something like foo2zjs.

Manjaro and HP LaserJet1018 driver

Here's what happened to one fellow who had an HP Printer problem and more:

My problem is 50% solved.

I re-re-reran the hp-setup -i command and I was able to get it to tell me that it was looking for 'hplip-3.13.6-plugin.run', which I googled. This took me to the AUR page for hplip-plugin. This I installed using 'yaourt -S hplip-plugin'. Then I re-re-re-reran the hp-setup -i command, which let me install both printers! However, while the Photosmart printer seems to work fine now, the system seems to not be able to connect to the laserjet. Go figure.

I will attempt to reboot the laserjet and try again a little later. For now, it's celebration time.

There's no follow-up, so we don't know if his LaserJet finally worked.

I'm in the process of re-installing Windows7 - For some reason, EasyBCD can't work well with Manjaro so I'm very hesitant to try again. That's why i would like to hear from someone who had same issue.

I had a problem with an HP 1020 on Centos 5 and used this page successfully http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/.
It covers various others as well, inc 1018

foo2zjs is the answer for sure!

Just wish it could be done automatically.

It can depend on the OS version eg when I moved up to Centos 6, it handled the HP 1020 without needing that page

Indeed!

Can be a bit frustrating by the time you find a solution though.
