Manually Installing a New Locally Connected Printer and Printer Driver When Ubuntu detects a printer it will automatically select a driver if the printer is recognized and a driver is available. To manually add a printer, begin by clicking on the New button in the Printer configuration toolbar. A Please Wait. Searching for Printers dialog will appear as the system is scanned for a locally attached printer. Once the search is complete, the New Printer Wizard dialog will appear including an entry for each detected printer. In the following figure, Ubuntu has detected an HP DeskJet printer connected to a USB port:

Select the desired locally connected printer from the list in the left hand panel and click the Forward button to select the appropriate printer driver. On the resulting screen select the printer manufacturer and choose the model from the list. Click on the Forward button to install the appropriate driver for the printer:



Once the printer driver matching the printer has been selected, click the Forward button and enter the optional printer description and location information. You should be returned to the Printers dialog where your new printer should be listed.
Once the driver is installed you are ready to try out the printer. In the Printers dialog select your printer, right click with the mouse to pop up the menu and select Properties. Click on Print Test Page to send a test page to the printer.

Primera trio driver in linux


Unless you can find Linux drivers on the manufacturer's website..

However, try installing 'generic' drivers.
Connect your printer and turn it on.
Then go to the Ubuntu repository (software centre) by clicking on the 'shopping bag' icon on the left of your screen:

That will take you to the repository. In the repository just search for 'printer':

Tip

2008 printers to print wirelessly in Ubuntu Linux.


How to make 2008 printers to print wirelessly in Ubuntu Linux. So far this work around is only applicable to 2008 products with Linux support.

1. Install any 2009 Linux printer driver – The purpose of installing any 2009 printer driver is to get lxnet. Currently, the 2008 printers don't have the lxnet.

Not lexnet nor lexnet3 but lxnet...
NOTE: If you misspelled this one - you will get an error... during CUPS or during printing..

2. Install the 2008 Linux driver for the printer.

3. Copy lxnet from /usr/lexinkjet/lxk09/bin/ to /usr/lexinkjet/08zero/bin.

From terminal:
sudo cp /usr/lexinkjet/lxk09/bin/lxnet /usr/lexinkjet/08zero/bin/


4. Add wireless printer through CUPS.

URI: lxnet://<ip address>:1/
Not lexnet nor lexnet3 but lxnet...
NOTE: If you misspelled this one - you will get an error..."bad device uri" or "client not possible"

5. Thank you....

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

Reformat laptop with Linux


First you need to choose a linux distro, I suggest ubuntu since it is the easiest by far.

Steps for installing ubuntu -
1. go to http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download and follow the directions to burn a live cd
2. restart your computer with the live cd in the cd drive
3. you can choose to try ubuntu, test it out for a bit, and then install it from inside ubuntu, or you can install it directly from the menu you get when your computer boots up. When trying ubuntu, you can also mess around with the built in partition editor ( there is an option to format the whole drive when installing so you don't have to worry about formatting before installing)
4. Just follow the instructions and install, and then enjoy :)

Installing linux o.s


You have to download ubuntu here:

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

Then burn the file ( it's an iso) with a burning program like Nero or whatever you have available.

That's the easiest way.

Here are other ways you can do it:

Let me know if any of this doesn't make sense.

Best of luck!
