    Howdy! I got a new MBP this week and Leopard and install went fine. :) Anyway, now I am trying to hook up my old printer (an HP Laserjet 1020). I saw on other sites that you could do this with the 1022 Driver - which is a pack for the whole 1020 series. It worked for people on the site, but, of course, they were running Tiger (or earlier). I wondered if anyone has tried doing this with Leopard and if you have any tips for doing this that would be great. Oh, and I know the easiest way to take care of this is just to buy a new printer :D... but I really don't have the money right now.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have that printer, and I don't have Leopard... so take this for whatever it's worth. I've had fairly good success getting HP printers to work on non-identical HP drivers. For instance, a networked LaserJet 1100 prints great with LaserJet 6 drivers; IDK why, but it does.

    If you are asking pre-purchase, I'd think there would almost certainly be a way to print to your 1020. If you're trying to set it up, give some alternative HP drivers a whirl.

    Can't get driver 1022 hp to be recognized by Leopard

    Has someone found a way to get the HP 1022/1020 driver to be seen by Leopard?;)

    After I installed the driver, the Leopard printer setup just found it automatically. It did so for both my iMac and PowerBook.

    Ah! This one works in leopard with the 1020.. the newer 1022 driver from hp's website does NOT.

    If you, like me, installed HP's 'newer' driver and can't get it to recognize the driver for your 1020, delete the /Library/Printers/hp/laserjet/1020Series/ folder and the /Library/Receipts/hp LaserJet 1022 Series.pkg receipt and then you can install the package above.

    hi i went through most of the tips about installing HP 1020 driver on leopard, but no success...:(

    while i try to install drivers, on the third steps right after clicked "agreed" button on, it tells me "there is already new version of volume exist on this main volume, failed to install HP laser jet 1020 series". went back to all the folders possible to delete (under lib/printers/, lib/receipts, printer setup, color sync, etc). then rebooted. try to install it or different one again, but still popes up the the same thing warning. please help me what could it be missing i tried most of the possibilities i can think of...:(

    follow appleguru1's instruction. It works!

    Dear Mr. Appleguru1
    I followed your advice by deleting the driver softwares that I downloaded from HP website-1022. I deleted both at the library-printer and library-receipts.
    Then I download a new software from your recommended url.http://www.narc.ca/1601-LJ_1022_Series_OSX.dmg
    Then I restarted my Imac-Leopard 10.5.
    Then I add the printer for HP Laserjet 1020.
    Then it works.
    Now I can use my old HP Laserjet 1020 with my recently purchased(today) Imac 2.0 GHZ with OS x 10.5 Leopard, Thanks to you.
    Again thank you very much Mr. Appleguru1.
    I almost gave up solving this problem and was going to buy a new printer that is working with Leopard.
    Now I can use this old printer for a while.
    Sincerely, Ekachai from Bangkok Thailand

    HP LaserJet 1020 works on Mac Leopard

    Thank you, Mr. Appleguru1 and icyremy.

    I followed all your instructions to delete all the driver sw I downloaded and installed previously for 1022; downloaded the driver as instructed; installed and restarted the Mac; and then added the 1020 printer. I am very happy it works now.

    Thank you very much!

    After having to go through this again after rebuilding my laptop, I decided to just package the right files together and create a quick installer. This installer also enables the various printer options (print quality, paper, etc.)

    Here it is: http://yogipatel.net/static/HP_Laserjet_1020_Leopard_Driver.dmg

    Once installed, plug in the printer, go to Printer Setup, and select the printer from the list. The driver should be automatically detected as a "HP LaserJet 1020". I've tested it with all versions of Leopard on intel machines, and seems to work fairly well.

    Just not working

    I've been trying the fixes suggested here for seven months, since I got my Leopard MacBook Pro and a 1020. They never work to solve my main problem: If I send a file to the queue before the previous file is done printing, the queue hangs up after the first file. The first file gets printed, but it never leaves the queue, and I have to manually delete it, then turn off the printer, restart it and then tell the printer to resume. This happens EVERY time there is more than one file in the queue. Anyone else have this problem? Again, none of the driver fixes suggested here have helped.

    I have the same question as Stephen. When I install the HP Laserjet 1020 Series driver (the one for Leopard), then go to the Printers-pannel, and select my HP Laserjet 1022, which is connected via the network, I can choose the drivers, but Laserjet 102x isn't there... When I select PostScript-printer, it doesn't work...

    Still some problem

    I have the printer HP laserjet 1020 plus.... any help?
    also the printer is at an office, and I dont go there so often, My uncle just bought an imac, and i'm actually trying to solve this problem for him as it is his first mac. I downloaded all the drivers.. tried them all one by one, but everytime I go to the printers pane in system preferences, and try to select the driver for a printer, hp laserjet 1020 and 1022 are not part of the list... please help, can I select other and select a file on the hd as the driver?
    Also I want to mention that there was a cd with the printer and it had a package called 1020 series, and that was the first thing we installed on the imac, when trying to make the printer work, but no use. Please help as he doesnt want to buy a new printer right now.

    HP Laser Jet 1020 with Snow Leopard

    I successfully got my HP Laser Jet 1020 operating on Leopard by using the excellent information on this thread.

    Does anyone know if the driver will still work when upgrading to Snow Leopard?

    Thanks for any thoughts along this line.
