Obvioulsy, you didn't read the post at the very top if this forum, that states "Please READ this before posting!". Titles like "help please" don't help. Also, how do you expect anyone to help you, with this question?? You don't say what version/distro of Linux, what printer you've got, attached to what hardware, and what "printer software" you're trying to load. You don't say where you got it, or what you're doing to GET that error.

If you don't provide details, you can't get answers.

Hello xander68, welcome to LQ,

I agree with TB0ne, use an explanative thread title and provide more information.

Windows Software doesn't run under Linux, you cannot use windowsdrivers for Linux. If you need further advice, tell us which printer you are using, make and model.
