Linux This is a problem I've been dealing with for a while now. I have a Lexmark printer which I've bought without checking for compatibility with Linux (I bought it when I was still using Windows), and as it turns out, this printer is not supported in Linux. I switched to Linux on my main desktop full-time late last year, so instead of to my desktop, I hooked this printer up to my bedroom Windows 7 media server/HTPC, and whenever I need to print, I just drop the file in question on this machine, and print form there. I need a better solution. Update: As it turns out, Lexmark has recently started releasing Linux drivers (good stuff). Still, the problem at hand stands, as there might still be other printers that suffer from the same problem.

I've always found printer manufacturers to be very competent. They sell printers which unless faulty, do the job they are supposed to do.


HA-HA. Oh, wow!

Please, sir, I have always had a fascination with dimensional travel and alternate worlds. How did you manage to move from your native reality in to my own? Would you be willing to teach me the technique?
