Setting up HP LaserJet P1005 on Debian Lenny

Do not confuse this printer with LaserJet 1005, it’s different printer (you’ll need drivers from foo2zjs package for 1005).

To make P1005 working you’ll need hplip package. Run hp-setup as root or run hplip from system menu. Unfortunately it is not able to download required plugin (at least in version 2.8.6b). You have to download it manually here http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-2.8.6b-plugin.run and provide to hp setup tool.
