First of all, let me thank you for taking your time to search and sharing with me. Your findings did help. I finally installed my Canon printer, and it's working fine, although it only prints in black and grayscales...Better than nothing. I will search to see how to have colours.
You know Phin666, I had bounced up with that mambo.kuhp.kyoto...site, but I never realized that the instructions had to be plug by shell, terminal or whatever Linux calls it. And just to illustrate the Community, I also learned that Ubuntu does not come with the tools required to install pkgs..you need to install the pkg build-essential for making the pkg and checkinstall and so it can be placed into the pkg mgr. This tip is berried in the Community Ubuntu Documentation (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo
) page 1/5. Now I understand why when consulting with friends of mines that are Computer Specs, they always avoid the theme...The system, Linux, is great for free, but learning curve is very steep. Gosh, I have read like a deamon this last month, and I'am just begining...
Thanks again, the forum is also great, how someday I can contribute with something worthwhile so the rest of users can also be benefited, Regards..lgp
