I don't, so deferring to someone that does. In lieu of that, I offer ...
I hear that you are frustrated, wanting more ease around getting
I can get that and want to separate that from "Hewlett Packard refuses
to support Linux" which is untrue in many ways (disclosure, I used to
work in one of the printing divisions).
Here's the company sponsored page about printing in LInux:
From the get help page
"HP does not provide telephone support for Linux printing. All support
is provided online at the following web page: https://launchpad.net/hplip
then click the "Ask a question" section."
Here's a sept 2008 page which says the p1006 is _supported_ with
caveat: "Known Issues 1. User initiated printer status in the hp-
toolbox is not available during the print job".
That was for 2.8.2. Current release is 3.10.2
On a 9.10 ubuntu system, I see a 'apt-cache search hplip' return a
list of things things. While I don't have that printer or experience
with it, I would try to install a few of the systems and see if that
gets things going.
