Talking installing undetected printers


I use pclinuxos 2010 and bought a SAMSUBG LASERJET PRINTER when I connected it to my computer it was not detected. How can I add it so that I can start using it

Check the Open Printing dot org printer database for your printer. It's not an ironclad reference, but it's a great resource.

For more help here, post the model of your printer so persons can offer specific suggestions.

If it's a USB printer, try running lsusb to see whether the computer is detecting it.
