I really think I tried everything a newbie can possibly do...
Tried uninstalling it, tried reinstalling it. I downloaded it from the web all over again....
All I get is the same error message! Funny thing is that my HP deskjet functions just the same.
So I said, what the heck, it might just stay as is.
Perhaps when the G.G.7.10 version is out and available for updating F.F.7.04 distros, it might -just might- iron out the bug
Mind you, all other pluses are more than enough to overshadow the ONLY bug ubuntu has had so far under my use!
