Hi,

Generally the HP Laserjet 1020 printer is not copatible with any Mac OS version as lsited below:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01973413

 

As a workaround you may install an alternate driver as following:

  1. Connect the printer to your Mac and ensure it is power on and ready.
  2. Download and install the following drivers from apple:
    https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1888?locale=en_US
  3. Go to System Preferences > Printers & Scanners.
  4. Click the plus sign and select the listed 1020 printer.
  5. Within the Use drop down menu click on Select Printer Software.
  6. Locate and select the HP Laseret 1022 model and press Add.

Now try printing with the newly created print queue.

thx ShlomiL

 

This is the solution. Laserjet 1020 is working weel with the 1022 Driver.

 

I expected Appel or HP support centers to give me that great answer, but ... nothing

 

Thanks again

I downloaded the print driver, but there are still no printers to choose from when I click the plus sign.  It is all blank and I cannot type anything.   Please help.

This is probably too late to help, and may not be a workaround that works for you, but ...

 

I also have a very old HP LaserJet 1020.  I had it running via USB on my MacBook last year, but after upgrading to OSX 13.4 it seems the compatibility is gone.  Note that the driver I formerly used was labeled for a 1022, not 1020, but it worked.  Anyway the printer no longer shows up in my list of printers.  I tried following Shlomi's post of 8/5/17 but like you, the list of printers was blank, and no way to select or define the HP.

 

I did a bunch of reading and have concluded that at the moment I can't download a driver that allows a direct USB wired connection to my MacBook... maybe someone else figured that out.

 

I did read about AirPrint.  I unhooked my HP 1020 and plugged it in with the USB to the port on my Apple Airport Extreme.  After that, under system preferences and click +, the HP 1020 appears as a choice as a Bonjour printer.  No other drivers needed ... works fine.

 

I hope this helps.

You should create new thread with your question to get some help on installing apps and drivers distributed with DMG files.
