Printer Driver (HPLaserjet 1020 Printer in RHEL5.4 )


Hi All,

I am facing problem installing HPLaserjet 1020 Printer in RHEL5.4 . i didnot get printer driver.
Can u please tell me the steps how to install printer in RHEL5.

Thanks .

I'm not sure about RHEL but on my distro HP printers use a package called hplip.  You may want to see if you can install that.
