Can't print, no ethernet, pls help!!
Good day. I am very new to linux and so far think it is great. I first installed it on a laptop to get a feel for the OS and having liked that, I went ahead and installed it on one of my older desktops.
The problem is that I can not get my printer or my ethernet to work. I am not sure what I should do. I have run the printconf-gui command and installed it from there(I have a lexmark Z32, and am running red hat V8). When I try to print a test page it just says there was an error when trying to print. I have also downloaded the tar from Lexmark, and the files seem to be in the \usr\local\lexmark dir. I am sure I am doing something silly, but what?
As for the ethernet, I have two ports. One directly on the mobo and the other an extra card. The extra card worked on the system when it was a windows system, so I am sure this one can get to work - just not sure how to get it going. I am still learning all this stuff, so if it is an easy solution please forgive me but the book that came with the red hat is less than stellar when things don't go exactly as hoped.
ANy help or ideas would be very appreciated.
