posted else where I finally got my DDS-32 printer to work over the lan, with Ubuntu.
to at least default paper source and 2 sided printing.
it's close cousin, an IBM infoprint 40, is LP1 one sided, but not on the lan yet, and
with one big printer going I may not push the project.
I know I will never buy a copy of Vista or another computer with vista pre installed.
[save some extremely discounted close out]
but on a couple of machines I cannot yet abandon the xp partition.
when I need All the features of the printers or I need quickbooks,
I am stuck with xp.
the sun 'll come up tomorrow...
more problems will be resolved.
some day the killer app will be ported to linux.
at my age I hope to see the day I'm windows free and
enjoying ubuntu only but I'm not holding my breath.
before "der tag" Ubuntu is just so much easier for the 99.44%!
and if I say no to free printers that are Linux incompatible,
I would be another half way there.
