View Full Version : [kubuntu] Kubuntu Workstation trying to print on older XP Machine

November 28th, 2010, 07:28 PM
I have just moved to Kubuntu 10.10 and really like it so far. Had a little problem with updating using kpackage and read about synaptic and now it works great.

My next problem is printing. My hp d1420 is hooked up to an older XP machine and is currently shared between quite a few computers now. I have tried about of the ideas on the net with no success getting this printer to work on here tho. Alot of what I have read has been for different versions, not 10.10. Any help would be appreciated.
