I don't see any driver or software for the laserjet 1018 that would apply to a MAC OS

Getting it to work in Mac is a mess. This printer will work with Parallels though!

Connect the printer and let Parallels take control of it: go to DEVICES--> USB --> HP Laserjet 1018

Download & install the Windows driver here:

I am using a MacBook Pro 13Inch. using Snow Leopard  10.6. After much frustration,and help from the Mac GURU Terry at Station Earth in Fergus, Ont. we found if you use "  HP LaserJet 1022, 1.3.0.261" it works great. it does not work with the "Gutenprint" version of same driver.

Thank you Hooligan!!! 

 

I have a brand new iMac desktop with Snow Leopard and my old trusty HP LaserJet 1018 now working perfectly with the "HP LaserJet 1022, 1.3.0.261" driver that was preinstalled on the Mac's Harddrive.

 

After reading some complicated and sketchy solutions on a couple other forums I decided to search some more, hoping for  simple solution ... well this is IT!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Thanks again!

HP LaserJet 1022 - Guten v5.2.3 is listed on the options provided by my MAC OS X 10.6.7, however "HP LaserJet 1022, 1.3.0.261" is not.  Guten does not work as you all said and I've already tried looking for 1.3.0.261 online but haven't had any luck.  Can you tell me where I can download it? Thanks!

Hooligan your a star!

 

Just converted from a dell to a macbook pro (was forced, my dell was on its last legs and before i could buy a new one the wifey purchased me a macbook pro :smileytongue:) and in consequently hating to admit that im loving it!

 

the driver thing worked a treat so really appreciate you sharing the advice, the world needs people like you!

 

take care
