Printer Drivers for AIX

Hi to all
Trying to find printer HP drivers for AIX version 7. HP.com only references Unix. Have drivers on an older IBM system Risc 6000, AIX 4.3, but not sure where the "tar" file exists for the printer collection. The new IBM I am trying to setup is a 710 Express Server. The printer is a HP Laserjet 2035n. It currently works fine using a HP 4000 driver installed on the Risc 6000 system. Any suggestions along with instructions would be greatly appreciated.

If your printer definition file is in /etc/foomatic/direct or ~/.foomatic/direct you do not need to specify its path. Put a (instructions in the file) to redirect the output of directomatic to your printer instead of standard output. To make normal users able to print this way add them to group lp and make sure the appropriate printer device file /dev/lpX is group-writable. See http://www.linuxprinting.org/direct-doc.html FILES
