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.

This site is usually seen as a news site. If you have problems you generally go to the forums of the distro you have on your computer to post them there. But this is really funny because you have already succeeded in posting here and yet you don't take the chance to post the question at hand instead of asking something else totally unrelated.

What make/model of printer and what distro and version of linux?

Then, what problem is it? Now, shoo shoo, to your forums. They will usually help you. (But you should also reply to me and link to your post in another forum, in case helpful souls from here read too.
