HP printer configuration: Setup LaserJet
"Setup LaserJet" is an installer script for changing the configuration of a HP LaserJet printer. Now you can configure things like EconoMode, RET, Duplex and Powersave with your Amiga.

The script was only tested with a HP LaserJet 1320 but should also work fine with other printers of the LaserJet serie.
