We have many HP laser printers at our school. We even have the barely
functional HP laserjet 1000 which is truly a nightmare. For less money I
got a Brother HP-2070N network printer that is 5 times the printer and
network ready to boot. We also have several of the 1300 HP series
running fine under Debian.
I am sorry to hear you did not check the printer database first. You can
make that printer work --- but I would doubt it worth the effort.
