I am trying to install the print server on my Macbook. I have tried setting it up by browsing the default apple talk zone, the windows printing and browsing by IP. When selecting the printer from the apple talk browser, the print monitor says the document has printed but nothing happens.
Here was the way I got it to work on my Mac: Set up the printer with a static IP address. Then add it as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printer. Specify L2 as the queue for a USB printer. (L1 is the parallel port).
(This took me a while to figure out - I couldn't get IPP or AppleTalk to work properly).

As the Laserjet 1020 not officially supported by the OS, you will need to download and install the HP Printer Drivers 2.11 package which include the Laserjet 1022 drivers, those should allow you printing using your device.
Install the package by following the Download below:
After completing the installation go to System Preferences ' Print & Scan and click the Plus sign,
Select the listed printer and click the Print Using drop-down.
Click Select Printer Software and then select the Laserjet 1022 which should be available now.
Complete adding the printer and try printing now.
Try printing whatever you were wanting to print but click the drop down arrow right next to the printer selection tab. Then you should see a drop down menu about halfway down the menu, click it and select print settings. You should see another drop down menu called color, just click it and change it from grayscale to color.
Hope this helps,
There is a setting in the print dialogue that allows you to set that the printer prints only in grayscale. There is a chance that you have that setting changed and it is printing in grayscale each time you print by default.
Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

I think the problem is that lexmark never made this printer mac os compatible. I have one and the disk it came with was for windows only, while i have a 3300 series and that came with a disk for both windows and mac.
