This printer does not have a linux driver. I looked at several sources, including, it isn't even listed there.

As I see it, you have two choices. 1. Buy a printer with linux support. Look at HP or Brother. Both have web sites that list driver support for linux. I believe Ubuntu has the HP (hplip) divers in the repos.

2. Install v-box. Then install something like Win-XP in v-box. Run the printer inside v-box when you need to print.

Hope this helps.
