BE CAREFUL! I'm running OS X 10.7.5 and can no longer print PDFs. Microsoft Word and Open Office documents seem to print fine, but I'm stuck with PDFs, and that's a problem for me! This is my work computer too, so I'm struggling trying to downgrade to version 2.14 which worked fine. ver. 2.16.1 is going on a 20+ hour productivity killer for me. Should have left well enough alone when the update came out, and will not be making this mistake again. Lord willing I'm not looking at another 20 hours of tinkering here...

Since buying a WiFi Photosmart D110, printing has been a nightmare. I consistently have to restart the printer and or the MacBook Pro to get it to work, and then sometimes it still doesn't work. I usually resort to my old non-HP laser black & white out of frustration. I install all the updates as well as delete and re-add the printer queues. Sometimes it works, then when trying the second print job, oh the pain. The Wifi network recognizes the printer is there, but the printer usually can't start, and HP's software says it can't find the printer, despite its appearance on the network. The HP updates don't seem to be much help. I always install the most recent, hoping that it will cure this temperamental beast. I really wonder if HP really tests these things on real Macs.

Not sure if this is some sort of joke from HP - I can't laugh.

The LaserJet 1022 has been listed as supported for 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 for years now. Fact is, it has never really worked.

See HPs compatibility info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01664444&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=439323#N2444

It prints one page and then spits out blank pages and all three lights start blinking.

If it wasn't me who owned a 1022 this might be funny.

I have recently retired my old 1022nw printer and I like you think that this should be delisted from the HP drivers page as it's not worked for years!. If you really need to use the printer, then the only reliable way is to us the CUPS driver available in Gutenprint.
I have since upgraded to the P1102w which I am very happy with and works great with the HP driver.

The Hp Printers work great in ML and Snowleopard as I have anHp Printer on one of my iMacs the other has a Brother Printer. They both have never failed me and I can't say enough about HP support desk at HP for Mac. They are superlative.

You think i Work for HP because I like the way the printers are compatible with Snow Leopard and ML???? That is more than KRAZY!! It is incredible to believe that someone here is a stooge or shill for HP.It is just not credible!

Mountain Lion, Officejet Pro 8500, wireless connection.

The first driver update in quite some time that did NOT require a re-install/ set-up of the printer. All features work OK --though ML scanning is a minor PIA due to the loss of TWAIN

This driver leads to repeated interruption of printer connection if printers are connected to a wireless server, in my case Apple Airport Extreme. The issue affects at least Mountain Lion users, perhaps earlier OSs as well. Do not update, if possible. Waiting for a new update to solve the issue of this update. (:

at least a direct download from Apple's (getting a plug-in failure)

MU link is fine.

The MU link is broken for me, but downloading directly from the Apple Support page works.

Despite being on the list of supported devices, the HP LaserJet 1022 does not work at all under OS X 10.8.

It's now a brick. But what do I need brick for?

I've only got one printer. Why do I have to download over 400mb?

Run Software Update. It will only download the needed files for just the printers you have installed. For me,it only required about 62MB to update my specific drivers to 2.12. The large file is useful for site installations where a large selection of HP printers need to be supported, or if you are preparing a Mac for someone else and aren't sure what specific model they might have now or in the future.

Mcr: What good of a strategy is that, if you have a printer in a place without internet connection? Prlab's point remains valid and true.

Monkeyjunkey:
Priab doesn't mention not having an Internet connection, not sure how/why you presume that. And if you don't have Internet, then it wouldn't matter, because without Internet, you wouldn't be able to download any file, whether it's 400MB, 40MB or 4MB.

If you are in a situation where you don't have a connection and need your driver 'in hand', then yes, one 'could' argue carrying around one 400MB file that supports ALL HP printers versus a smaller one that is just for one model is more cumbersome...but given the price and availability of gigabyte size flash drives and hi speed internet, I'd rather have the 400MB file and be prepared for any HP model I might right into rather than the one driver for one model. What if I run into another printer, or the model is wrong?

Why does the HP Shortcut Manager Starter & HP Shortcut manager take up 100% of my CPU on wake-up?

Terrible. Every time I re-start the computer I have to quit these useless apps. I need to write it into my shell script so I never see them.

Better yet - why doesn't HP ever fix this. It has been an ongoing problem for years!

Buy from Epson or Canon instead.

On 10.6.8 if your printer is broken do the following:

In Finder navigate to Macintosh HD / Library / Printers / hp / PDEs. Right (control) click on 'hpPostScriptPDE.plugin' and 'Show Package Contents'.

Then open the Contents folder and you will find a plugins folder. DELETE IT and your printer will work.

Same issue. I've now installed it five times now. I suspect we all also have installed the "drivers" (i.e. big bloated crapware package - almost 500MB!) for a new HP All-In-One, or something similar. I haven't found a fix yet either, except for telling Software Update to ignore the update.

I really wish Apple would release an update that included these drivers, so that this issue would stop and I could uninstall all that HP junk!

I have tried to install this twice even and after a reboot, with a repair permissions for good measure, each try it never gets passed the final "Running Package Scripts" with about a minute to go. It sits there running 100% CPU with "kextd" as the culprit. Might just be my system but an FYI! I am running 10.6.2 on a MB Pro Core 2 Duo.

UPDATE: I left it alone and after 14 min it FINALLY finished. Not sure what was going on or why it takes 100% of the CPU for 14 min to install a print driver on my system but it's done and an FYI to anyone else that sees this issue.
