1. $ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
$ cd foo2zjs
2. $ make
3. ./getweb P1006 (for others models http://foo2xqx.rkkda.com/INSTALL)
4.sudo make install install-hotplug
5.Power down and up the printer.
6. sudo usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

At this moment, didin't work for me, but i found this additional steps

1. sudo apt-get install hplip
2. sudo hp-setup -i

That's it.

hplip GUI, at least for me didin't solve anything.

when I opened a terminal and pasted the first line, I'm asked for a password, but my password wont appear as typed, nothing appears, and I can't then paste the second line.

can you help? my password is numerical :(

this p1006 from hp is recognized by mint but won't print anything.

Don't worry, in the terminal, your password is never showed, just type it, and press the enter key.
