Okay, I know this is a very old printer, but now that I have upgraded to Ubuntu 10 the driver is available.

When I print a file (say an OpenOffice word processor file)

it takes forever (maybe 3 minutes) before it prints a line

then another 3 minutes and the line prints again.

Also, it does not seem to want to print all the way out to the right margin of my paper. It is somehow deciding to put in a carriage return about 2/3 of the way across the page.

Might it be a memory buffer problem or going from a high speed computer to a slow speed printer or a setting somewhere?
