Install a LaserJet 1000 printer driver
Authored by: Caradosga on Jul 19, '04 05:03:28PM

I successfuly downloaded and installed the Zenographics SDK driver and managed to print MS word documents from a machine with OS X 10.3.4 to a HP Laserjet 1000. When I try to print pdf documents from Adobe Acrobat 6.0.1, however, the printer does not respond. I see that the print center accesses the printer and then displays the messages:
Starting job
followed by:
No pages found!
And, after a few seconds the job line disappears without any other sign.
Any hints?

Does anyone have the Zenographics driver? The site isn't working.

The adobe programs don't utilize the official OS X method of printing. The official way is to send PDF files, which the driver is able to translate. The adobe programs (and some carbon programs) send postscript, which the Zeno driver can't handle.

Someone smarter than me can probably create a PPD driver that translates the postscript through EPS Ghostrscript and then goes through the Zeno driver. But I'm at a loss.
