Looking for driver for bjc 210,250 for use with Suse 7.2.


I went to linuxprinting.org but there is too much info. to choose from. 7.2 seems to be using LPR not CUPS. Can anyone help me?

If your using KDE its simply a matter of controlcenter->peripherals->printers and changing the drop down list to CUPS. If you haven't got CUPS installed you can download it from SUSE as a package.

Their are several which support them the recommended one is gimp-print.

All the driver files are in the gimp-print library. So you need to download and install gimp-print. If it isn't already. I believe their a package in SuSE and redhat for it. They follow the instructions for setting up CUPS.
