installing the printer in Debian
Yes, good points (BTW I do have a cat and a dog).
I have set up a network printer (HP Photosmart C7283 All-In-One) for 3 machines in a Windows environment. I want to install it to my Debian Laptop, also through the same 8 port switch. When I open a Word file to print from the Debian machine, the printer does not appear.
Is there a command line command I need to enter? I thought it would be plug and play, but obviously not. I have downloaded the Linux version of the HP printer S/W but as a new Linux user, I am not even able to find and access that printer S/W (let alone install it).
