Install HP Laserjet 1018 on Raspbian

[Update: 26-2-2022] The foo2zjs download link from rkkda seems to be offline.
According to a post on the Ubuntu Forum foo2zjs can still be downloaded from a mirror on Github.

I managed to successfully install the HP Laserjet 1018 printer on a Raspberry Pi 4 with Raspbian Buster by following the instructions below. It makes use of the foo2zjs linux printer driver.

These instructions are based on andrum99’s blog-post which is available on the Internet Archive.

1. Install pre-requisite packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install tix groff cups

2. Add user pi to lpadmin group:

sudo usermod -a -G lpadmin pi

3. Download and build foo2zjs:

wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz
tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
cd foo2zjs

[Release] Spotweb Filter Creator 0.4.0

Spotweb Filter Creator 0.4.0 has been released.

Two new languages have been added to this release, German and French.
Below is a screenshot of the German version, running in Linux Mint 14 (nadia).

Also the mechanism to load the translations is now much more dynamic than it was before.
This is a little bit techy stuff, but Spotweb Filter Creator doesn’t need a recompile anymore when just adding new languages.

The available languages are now defined in the spotwebfc.lng file instead of hardcoded into the source code.

For those that are interested, I’ve uploaded the translations to Transifex: Click here.

The translation project is “Free For All”, so feel free to contribute if you want Spotweb Filter Creator translated in your own native language :-)

Downloads for Windows, Linux and Raspberry Pi are available at the Spotweb Filter Creator project page.

Spotweb Filter Creator @ Raspberry Pi!

Today, I’ve managed to build a version of Spotweb Filter Creator for the Raspberry Pi.
