Getting driver for LaserJet printer

HP Recommended
HP LaserJet 1020
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have an HP LaserJet 1020 from 2005, [personal information removed].  I'm trying to connect it to my new iMac desktop, and have followed advice on the website to download HP PrinterDriver 5.1.  The desktop then advises 'image not recognised'. Can anyone guide me on this?  Thanks.

Hi @york21,

 

I'd like to help!

 

HP LaserJet 1020 Printer series driver for macOS is not available from the HP website or Apple Software Update. However, Gutenprint (formerly called Gimp-Print) provides open-source basic print drivers for many printers that would otherwise not be supported in Mac OS X. To see if your printer is supported, go to Gutenprint drivers for more information.

 

NOTE: Gutenprint drivers are not supported by HP or Apple.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
