how do i install a printer ???

its OK i've done it now, it's easy really, i wasnt looking in the right place for starters. thanks

another typical NEWBIE question, i have been using Windows for much too long, Plug and Play obviously hasnt been heard of in Linux, I dont mind that at all. but i have two printers at my disposal i would like one of them to work in Linux , an Epson 750 colur and a Hewlett Packard 840c


ps. they are both USB/Parrallel which is easiest ?

In a browser, type:


and set up your printer.

And plug n' play works fine in Linux.
