Kubuntu/Mepis/Freespire HP G85
I currently use opensuse, and have been using Suse since version 8, but since Novel took over it I have been looking for a replacement, even before this last announcement. I just think Novel has a track record of inserting their foot into their mouth.
On to the problem. I have not tested all the distributions and I don't plan to, but only the ones mentioned above, and I won't test others for personal reasons.
The problem is that all the above distributions fail to print to my HP officeJet G85 printer. They all recognize the printer but none are able to print to it.
Opensuse seems to be the only distribution that I have used/tested that can print to it.
This is very frustrating since in my opinion it is a matter of time before Novel FUBR opensuse, and I really like opensuse, and as it stands I can't find a suitable replacement.
I don't want to have to test distribution upon distribution.
I am also limiting myself to certain distributions for personal choices, the major 3 requirements being as follows:
1. KDE only distributions
2. No Mandriva or derivatives
3. Long term outlook
After all this I could just have asked "any ideas as of why none of the distributions mentioned above can print ?"
Sorry for the rant but I am frustrated.
