    Someone is suggesting that I send the printer raw DPL data, is this possible?

    Does anyone know if I were to install the printer on a windows machine, and then share it to a Ubuntu one, will it be able to print since it's "shared" from windows and not installed on the Ubuntu machine?

    hi,
    i m not sure but i think you need the driver in the linux machine.
    there is a feature in chrome browser of sharing printers with yourself might be they solved it somehow.

    Does Ubuntu see the printer? Open a terminal and type the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo lsusb
    Code:
    sudo lspci
    Put both the output's here.
