    I'm trying to connect an HP Laserjet 1012 to my mac over a network. I can add it using a USB cable, and it immediately knew what kind of printer it was. When I tried over the network, I had to select the model# from a list. How do I add a printer to this list? (here's a picture if I don't make sense):
    I've downloaded the driver, but I have no idea where it keeps getting saved to and when i search it's not there. Any ideas? Thanks

    This question has been asked and answered too many times to count--and that was last week. HP supplies a USB driver for your printer. You cannot use a USB driver over the network. You need a CUPS driver. Download and install the Gutenprint suite of CUPS drivers.
