[ubuntu] Replace scanner and printer with new Kodak 5250

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an old scanner that I never got to work very well with Ubuntu 8.04. In addition I have a HP Deskjet printer that is working fine. Now somebody gave me a new Kodak ESP 5250 "all in one" which I'm wondering if I'll be able to just plug-n-play. But, I have questions since I've never changed my hardware since installing Ubuntu. Do I have to do any kind of uninstall of the old hardware first or can I just unplug them and plug the new one in? Has anybody had any success with this device and Ubuntu? Thanks in advance for the help (Hardware)
