    I doubt that anyone will help with a version that is no longer supported. I know you say you can't (32bit?), but you need to upgrade to a supported version. Start another thread on your upgrade problem, got nothing to lose and everything to gain.

    I really can't upgrade it though, as well as the internet connection being spotty where I'm at, it's a really old comp and tends to freeze sponactically from every other minute to an hour, the last time I tried it took weeks just to restore back to the way it was.

    The 16.04 driver has not yet been pulled from the PPA.

    Good luck

    How do you fancy setting the printer up with a wireless connection?

    I forgot. 16.04 doesn't do driverless printing/scanning.
