Need to print to Dell All-In-One Printer but don't have the driver.


I checked the Dell support site but can't find the Linux driver for their printer. I don't think they support Linux. My printer is a Dell 968 and I'm using Lubuntu 14.04

superhotpepperz,

The chances are that Linux is unsupported, but what is the model number of the Dell printer and what Linux distro are you using?

Dell doesn't make printers. They rebrand them usually. It should print to either a standard model or you can set it to emulate a model.

Hello and welcome to LQ by the way.
