I upgraded one of my computers from 11.2 to 11.3. Most things were conserved, but I had downloaded specific wifi and printer drivers that were sacrificed and now require several hours of work to replace.

Hi, i have some problems in connecting the printer to my pc.
In practice, I followed a guide and I'm able to install the official driver, and when the printer is connected directly to the pc works fine. If I connect to the wifi router as it serves me, in the wizard to add a new printer does not detect the drivers already installed and it proposes a list of available drivers.
I have a small home network with a few computers/tablets and a network-enabled printer, all connected through wifi. The problem is I cannot connect (ping) from one specific computer ("A", 192.168.8.101) to the network printer (192.168.8.25), while at the same time all other computers can.
Hi all, just a quick post. I've just purchased a Epson Expression Home XP-212 all in one printer, copier & scanner with built in WiFi for £49.99. I got it to replace my old Epson Photo 870 printer which had finally packed up with 13 years service under its belt, don't think I can't really complain after that amount of time.
The Epson XP-212 must be the easiest printer I have ever installed.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.10, and when I upgraded to 11.10, somehow I lost the printer. I've read that this model is supported (Brother HL-2040), but it doesn't work, so I'm resorting to doing it the way I had to install it to my earlier version of Ubuntu.
I went to the Brother website and downloaded the cups driver and the Brother driver for my printer and installed them using apt-get install.
I recently upgraded a small company's computers. The new computers did not have parallel port cards so I bought a few parallel to USB adapters. These work fine on the local workstation, but if I then share the workstation and another workstation attempts to print via this printer, it doesn't see/use the printer fonts.
I am trying to set up a Canon ImageCLASS D340 printer connected via usb to an Ubuntu 12.10 computer. I was unable to find any ubuntu or linux drivers for it, but I do have the current windows drivers. I tried using ndiswrapper to add a .inf file from the windows driver, but it did not work. I am completely new with using windows drivers on ubuntu, so I do not really know what to do.
I only just got round to looking at whether the printer I have is compatible and find it is not - though it seems if I install the drivers http://sourceforge.net/projects/cups...atest/download 'some functionality' will be restored.
