View Full Version : [all variants] Printer recommendation for 10.04
January 8th, 2013, 08:29 AM
My neighbor is running 10.04 on a laptop. He bought a wireless printer and I was not able to get it to work wirelessly (it worked with the driver via USB but not via wireless). Anyway, he returned that printer and is asking for a recommendation for a printer which will function with Ubu 10.04 wirelessly.
The more seamless the setup the better.
(I suppose the price should be around fifty bucks.)

A good place to start? http://www.openprinting.org/printers
Have a look at what printers are available in his price range and check for Linux support using openprinting.org
Also have a look at the Ubuntu wiki - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers
There's loads of previous posts in the forum on printer installations.

First you should try to get him to do a fresh install of 12.10. It will save trouble later.
New hardware and an old operative system is not a good combination.

That link for the printer site will be useful. Thank you for that.
What I was rather hoping for was a testimonial like "I bought X printer from HP and followed the instructions in this link and worked flawlessly".
Is CUSP still that complicated?
