I have an HP 1018. The official site clearly states that there is no Apple support (specific MS drivers only in sw, no code on the printer).
Is there any chance to print from OS4 (copying some sort of code to prt: in order to initialize the printer, or something like that)?
From what I read here:

http://openprinting.org/printer/HP/HP-LaserJet_1018

- I have to say I doubt it very much. The way they make it work in Linux doesn't sound like it fits in with anything we have on AmigaOS (Postscript, Ghostscript or dedicated drivers etc.).

Did you check whether Turboprint supports it, by any chance?

Best regards,

Niels

Unfortunately seems to be out of date (latest update 2004?!), so my printer is not supported. It`s also a bit pricey (like a whole new printer!)...

Ah, okay, I wasn't sure how old the printer model was.

Best regards,

The LJ1018 I believe is an updated version of the LJ1010/LJ1012. Those models have a subset of the PCL command set. You might have limited success with a LJ4 driver, however the USB interface is likely to be "Dot4" so it won't work anyway.

Rene (rwo) was making progress on the Dot4 USB printer driver last year & you can try it out at os4depot. I could only print out a few lines with my HP Laserjet 1012 but some users had better luck.

rwo, any progress on your Dot4 driver lately ?

I tried the Dot4 USB printer driver, but no luck : the printer won`t respond, even if it`s recognized when plugged to the Amiga (a USB popup message appears).
