Ubuntu 12.04, LJ 1018.
I've tried making foo2zjs from sourse.
I've downloaded firmware and placed it where necessarily manually from here
I've also tried this - same as manual dowload but with some patches like stoping cups, etc..
usbfs: process 11200 (usb) did not claim interface 0 before use
sudo rmmod usblp as described here.
And now I have
Aug 10 11:51:59 pav /usr/sbin/hplj1018: foo2zjs: usb://HP/LaserJet%201018?serial=KP07RLV... download failed. Aug 10 11:51:59 pav /usr/sbin/hplj1018: foo2zjs: loading HP LaserJet 1018 firmware /lib/firmware/hp/sihp1018.dl to CUPS USB device ...
Before that prinet was stucking on "Sending data to printer". Now it's code is "Not connected".
