Driver for Hp Laserjet 1020 with Mac Os X 10.6.2

Hello guys,


I bought my Mac last year and I have some problems with the driver of my hp laserjet 1020. I found out that Hp don't give any driver for Mac and I don't know how to install this printer in my laptop. 

There's another strange thing too: I downloaded the driver for the 1022 and I tried to install it in the computer but it seems to not be possible because the computer says that there is a recent version already installed , but I never did! 


Hope you can give me some solutions!


many thanks

Re: Driver for Hp Laserjet 1020 with Mac Os X 10.6.2

Many printer drivers are built into OS X 10.6.  Have you simply tried to add the printer?


System Preferences, Print & Fax.  Add a printer by clicking the '+' sign.  When asked what driver to choose via a pulldown, choose ones that are close (maybe the 1022?), then click 'Add'.


If that driver does not work, remove the printer by clicking '-', then try again by clicking '+' until you find something that works.

I am employed by HP

Say thanks by clicking "Kudos" "thumbs up" in the post that helped you.
