It seems that a HPLIP interface is available for this printer,
so it should probably work with CUPS and _maybe_ with the
normal means of printing (FreeBSD printer spooler plus a
printer filter that turns PS, the _default_ output language
for printing, into the specific non-standard language that
printer wants to be spoken to in).

I'm using a similar approach for a terrible Samsung color
laserprinter (foo2qpdl-wrapper in my specific case) which
I could easily integrate with the already mentioned CUPS,
as well as the normal system's printer subsystem.

However, I also have not tested if it works for the M1120,
because I prefer to use printers that work, that's why I
don't own such a thing. :-)
