I connected an old HP 1018. The Printer is recognized, installed, but when I try to print, the documents stop in the printing pool. The system (5.0 Juno 64bit) flags them as printed while they're not. The files in the printing pool cannot be deleted either. The only way to stop this is to remove the printer.

Is there a workaround?

Thank you.


I've solved the problem with 'Hannah' which can download and install the (right) HP 1018 driver, among several others.

From the Test Print it appears to be the "FOO2ZJS-.PPD", v1.1.

You can install hannah-foo2zjs running

sudo apt install hannah-foo2zjs

What's up?

Try to install system-config-printer in your PC and configure your print by it

sudo apt install system-config-printer 


It works with me. This software recognized my print perfectly!
