Sorry for the late reply.

I installed the 3.10.9 printer driver successfully but when I try to print out 
a test page it says: "cups-missing-filter".
In the printer configuration module under Printer status it says:

Filter "/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip-hplip" for printer 
"Deskjet_1000_J110" not available. No such file or directory.

The is a file called /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip but apparently that is 
not the correct file?

I tried to manually copy foomatic-rip-hplip from the extracted installation 
file to /usr/lib/cups/filter/ and then the error message disappeared, but when I 
print a page (both test page from printer setup and from a document) the job 
is correctly spooled and can be seen in the printer applet, but is immediately 
stopped.

/var/log/cups/access_log says:

localhost - - [25/Jan/2011:12:58:31 +0100] "POST /printers/Deskjet-1000-J110-
series HTTP/1.1" 200 275 Create-Job successful-ok

which looks OK. /var/log&cups/error_log reports nothing suspecious:

localhost - - [25/Jan/2011:12:58:31 +0100] "POST /printers/Deskjet-1000-J110-
series HTTP/1.1" 200 275 Create-Job successful-ok

I'm all out of ideas now - can anyone help?
