HP Printer drivers (hpijs) for Mac OS X

Since I switched to Snow Leopard I was not satisfied with the printing drivers for my old HP OfficeJet 95. I used the included Gutenprint drivers. For text they worked ok, but images looked terrible.

Today I decided to do something about it. From Linux I know that HPLIP has some pretty good driver (hpijs) for most HP Devices. Fortunately I can use the same drivers for Mac OS X to. You need three packages to do this. More information can be found on the website of the Linux Foundation.

This should help you get your old HP Printer working.

    Hi Geert, I`ve noticed that you`ve been able to install this drivers in Lion, i wonder if you be so kind to email me the files you used to install, since the links to download them are down, i`ll be very thankful
