Mandriva 2010.2, Gnome 2.30.0. A friend sold me an HP1020 the other day
but I'm having the devil of a time getting it to work. I've downloaded
foo2zjs, printed the install instructions and followed them to the
letter as far as I can tell. After running make I made sure to run
the ./getweb 1020 command. After running make install as root I ran make
install-hotplug, unplugged the printer and re-plugged it in. I ran make
cups also. I went into Mandrivas MCC and installed the printer and since
I have the printer connected to the usb port when setting up the printer
I tried both usb:/dev/usb/lp0, lp1 and usb://HP/LaserJet%201020 for the
URI. Then following the next direction I powered off and on the printer,
I did 'not' see any light flash orange to indicate the firmware was
being downloaded. Note: I also have an HP6L connected to a parallel port
so I also entered this line in my /etc/profile:

cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1020.dl > /dev/usb/lp0

I've checked and the lp0 or lp1 file is present in /dev/usb/. When
running the command # usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0 to see if the firmware
is loaded I get:

Error: Inappropriate ioctl for device: GET_DEVICE_ID on '/dev/usb/lp0'

When trying to print a test document the printer icon on the task bar
says 'Printer HP LaserJet-1020 may not be connected'

I also see the below in my syslog:

The shorewall line is puzzeling, it seems to show up I believe when I
try to print a document. I now have allowed port 161 in my firewall
setup.

I'm not sure what to do about these two lines either:

Sep 25 15:56:13 localhost hp[14345]: io/hpmud/musb.c 2035: Invalid
usb_open: Permission denied
Sep 25 15:56:16 localhost python: io/hpmud/musb.c 2035: Invalid
usb_open: Permission denied

If I log out and back in again and try to print a document I do not get
the printer disconnected error, however, If I turn it off and then on
again, trying to print shows 'the printer may not be connected'

Any advice/assistance would be appreciated.
