If actionparsnip's procedure does not work or help, try these Terminal commands instead:

# Copy-paste following Terminal commands one by one into the Terminal:
# procedure to install printer driver for HP Laserjet P1007 without needing access to website:
# List of printers supported by foo2zjs printer driver:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove hplip cups-filters cups hplip-data system-config-printer-udev
sudo apt-get install build-essential tix groff dc axel cups cups-filters unp system-config-printer-gnome
sudo rm -rf /usr/share/hplip
cd /tmp
rm foo*
unp foo2zjs.tar.gz
cd foo2zjs/
./getweb P1007 # Get HP LaserJet P1007 firmware file
sudo make install
sudo make install-hotplug
# Unplug and re-plug the USB printer to the PC
# add new HP Laserjet P1007 printer via system-config-printer tool
# and choose to use foo2zjs foomatic printer driver :
# check /var/log/syslog for any errors related to foo2zjs driver:
tail /var/log/syslog
# then power cycle both your PC and your HP printer
# then retest printing using the newly installed foo2zjs driver
