I cannot get my HP 1020 Laser Jet printer to work!!
I am using Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop Edition installed as a (guest) operating system over Windows XP via a VMware Player. Ubuntu in this virtualized environment recognizes print job requests, but simply fails to execute them. The printer functions normally under the native Windows XP (host). Performing Test Print bears no fruit either. Is there any driver and/or Linux-compatible installation software available that is free of charge to fix this? I want a user-friendly printer solution that costs me no money if one is known to be available, please. No complicated command-line procedures!!
I ran the HP factory-supplied printer installation CD on Windows to install printer w/out a hitch before installing the virtual hard disk Ubuntu.
Virtualized Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) will not let me run the HP printer installation CD as the native Windows XP did.
