I've had a look around for help installing a driver for the Dell A960 All-in-One printer and drawn a blank. OK, I have to accept that there isn't going to be a driver for this printer. Could someone then please tell me what's the next best driver to install.

im not sure if the repo's have anything that will run it, see if they have any scanning software. failing that you could install virtualbox and have a windows vm to run it and do your scanning that way?

sorry i couldnt be more helpful bud..

Thanks for the quick response rannable. It's not really the scanning that's the major problem, it's the printing. I did a ubuntu install for a friend who then took her computer to France (her second home), plugged in the Dell A960 and didn't see any appropriate printer listed. She's a newbie so the instructions I give her need to be nice and simple.
