View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing a printer to ubuntu 9.10 Server

January 8th, 2010, 08:08 AM
It has been a year since i first used Ubuntu as a desktop replacement for M$ and Im loving it. Since I have an old PC just collecting dusts, i decided to try my hands on Ubuntu server as a file and print server.But for the life of me, I can't install my HP Officejet 5610 to my headless server.

I tried searching both in the interewbz but most of the tutorials are either aimed for the desktop and/or really old. For the others i found doesnt work. I change so much stuff that i ended up re-installing the server. It would be nice if someone walk me through on how to install my printer since im running out of hair to pull.

Here is what i have
Server: Ubuntu 9.10 (Headless)
Printer: HP Officejet 5610 All-in-one (USB connection)

Heres what i have in the server
