Notes

This printer does not work with Linux!!

---------------------------------------------------

Turboprint and Gutenprint does not support this printer. The only way to use it at this time is to map SAMBA to a Windows operating system and print from Windows via your SAMBA connection in Linux.

As I have not been successful yet in setting up Samba, I suggest you find help doing this. Here is an article on printing via Samba:
