I could not find the LaserJet-1020 drivers on the manufacturer's website. I Googled "LaserJet 1020" and discovered that the "1022" drivers are actually the "1020" drivers. This was borne out when I downloaded and installed the nominally "1022" drivers all informational messages during installation said 1022.
I went to the LaserJet-1022 website and downloaded the LaserJet 1020 drivers. (The download and install messages all say "LaserJet 1020" NOT LaserJet-1022.)
I successfully installed the LaserJet-1020 drivers according to all messages. When I went to set the LaserJet-1020 as my default printer, only the PhotoSmart-D7460 was in the "available" list. I clicked on the "+" box in the "Printer & Fax" in the "System Preferences" to add a new printer and the LaserJet-1020 appeared in the printer list. However the "Print Using:" tells me I must select a driver from the drop-down list. Neither the LaserJet-1020 nor the LaserJet-1022 appear in the list.
Last time I posted this message I was told I was in the Laptop forum. This time I followed the printer thread on the begin search page. I hope this is in the correct forum.

Hey did you ever find a solution to this? I'm having the exact same problem, I install the driver just fine but then the 'Add Printer' utility can't find it at all. Any help?
