Hi

I just installed a new printer and have a dual boot set up with Ubuntu 11.04 and Windows XP. I tried to find a driver in Linux by having it search for one, but it did not find a driver. I even tried using CUPS, but it did not work either. Would you know if there is a Ubuntu driver for this printer? If there isn't shouldn't cups work? I have to say I am somewhat new to linux in that I have never used any of the commands that are normally used by linux. This is the first distro of linux that I have found to be user friendly when it comes to detecting hardware.
Thanks for providing this forum!
