Thanks for a very helpful post. I tried several other options as well but failed to print wirelessly using your defined method as well.

Configuration:
Raspberry Pi (v1 / Zero / Zero W)
HP Laserjet MFP1005 Black & White Printer

I am able to find and select drivers by default but getting the following errors:

  1. While printing test page:
    I’m getting “filter-failed” error.

Hello @forgivensinner welcome to the balena community.

I checked the project and i’m not sure it’s compatible with Raspberry Pi zero. Do you have a Raspberry Pi 3 to test with?

Let us know if this works!

But the printer is detecting fine with drivers and everything.

I am also able to find the printer on the AirPrint from my phone, CUPS receives the print command as well but “Filter Failed” after that.

You need to install HP proprietary plugin. Make sure you have hplip package installed and then run “hp-plugin -i” to download and install that plugin.
