Using HP Laserjet 1020 from network printer on Mac OS

The situation is pretty similar to my previous post Using HP Laserjet P1006 from network printer on mac os, but the printer we are about to install now is HP Laserjet 1020. The printer is attached to Windows server 2003 as printer server, and you as a client want to use it from local network. But unfortunately Mac OS doesn’t provide driver for network use, otherwise we use foo2zjs.

foo2zjs is an open source printer driver for printers that use the Zenographics ZjStream wire protocol for their print data, such as the Minolta/QMS magicolor 2300 DL or Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL or HP LaserJet 1020 or HP LaserJet Pro P1102 or HP LaserJet Pro P1102w or HP LaserJet Pro CP1025nw.

As you can see, HP Laserjet 1020 is listed there.

OK, let’s install it. First, follow instruction step 1 to 3 on my previous post. Step 4 is pretty similar too, the difference is only on the ./getweb command.

$ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ cd foo2zjs
$ ./getweb 1020
$ sudo make install

Last, add the printer using Print & Fax Preferences. Select HP Laserjet 1020 Foomatic/foo2zjs-z1(recommended).

Happy printing 😀
