HP Laserjet 1018 in Ubuntu Feisty

I recently had to set up a HP Laserjet 1018 printer in Ubuntu Feisty.
Simple as it looks, it is not.
The printer gets added correctly, and when I try to print a test page, the process goes without errors, except: it does not print!
This seems bad enough, because, if it cannot print, at least it should notify the user.
Searching, I found a way to make it work here.
There it says we must download and compile the drivers from here.
Following these steps I was able to install the printer correctly, but nevertheless, it was a rather complex process.
