Ubuntu lucid linx and printers

view story

http://www.linuxforums.org – Hi, I would very much like to put this ubuntu program back onto my laptop. I did however a year ago experienced problems with the link between my laptop and my two printers, ie Canon isensys LBP 2900 laser or a canon 2700 inkjet. I could not print from either of my printers. Have anyone perhaps solved this problem which is the only ones keeping me still on Microsoft. alternatively is there a printer which (I hope to find in south africa) that you would recommend? (HowTos)
