Hi Folks,

after searching and trying a lot I finally got my LJ1000 to work under
Gentoo Kernel 2.6 using USB.
Here's a short summary of the Problems and how-to get it to work ..

1.) The lj1000 does need a firmware-upload after System boot !!
2.) Use foo2zjs-driver with CUPS.


Unfortunatly even after uploading firmware it didn't work first.
(I tried the Way described in the gentoo-printing-faq. )

Finnaly I followed the instructions on the driver-page - building the
driver new. NExt thing was to upload firmware and install the Printer again
(as usual) under CUPS. Somehow that way it startet to print.

Here's the Site describing how to do it :

http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/


Last i put my little "script" into /etc/conf.d/local.start.

Don't ask me why it didn't work after emerging CUPS (was the
same driver) .. anyway .. now it does.


STEP by STEP :

first install CUPS - should allready run- see gentoo printing guide
using USB the following modules should be loaded :

usblp
ehci_hcd
ohci_hcd
uhci_hcd
usbcore

you will get usblp by switching on USB-Printer in Kernel-Config.


1.) download foo2zjs :

> wget http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz

2.) untar it :

> tar xzvf foo2zjs.tar.gz

3.) go into new dir :

> cd foo2zjs.tar.gz

4.) make it

> make

5.) get the LJ1000 Firmware

> ./getweb 1000

6.) install

> make install

7.) upload firmware

> cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl > /dev/usblp0

8.) config / add printer under CUPS ( http://localhost:631 )
select the usb-port (printer should be named there) and use the foo2zjs driver


Now the Printer should work allready.

To make it work after next System boot do following :

> touch /etc/init.d/printer_firmware
> nano /etc/init.d/printer_firmware

insert this two lines :

#!/bin/bash
cat /usr/share/foo2zjs/firmware/sihp1000.dl > /dev/usblp0

save file and add

/etc/init.d/printer_firmware

to /etc/conf.d/local.start

Good Luck !
