    That install disc is made for Windows, it won't work with Ubuntu.

    Can you give us more details please, which version of Ubuntu are you using and what is the model number of your printer.

    if you have a recent ubuntu and a kodak aio printer, it should just work.
    Use a printer setup tool to create a quese for the printer.
    in my case , xubuntu 13.04, it's "settings manager", "printers"
    add a printer and select your model from the lists presented
    Then you can probably print

    11.04 in the proses of upgrading to 11.10 11.04 no longer supported maybe the reason ubuntu could not find drivers ?

    I think ubuntu 12.04 was the first version with the c2esp driver included.
    If you stay with 11.10, you could install the package c2esp_25c-1 using the deb file here

    I would (as always) recommend a fresh install of 13.04, especially when hardware support is the problem.

    I've debated this with myself. Do I recommend a distro with such a short support cycle? If the in-place upgrades work as promised it wouldn't be an issue but in-place upgrades have historically had a 'checkered' history.
