Hello,
I updated my Ubuntu to the latest version-Jackalope and now my printers do not work. They worked in the earlier version that I had been using. Printers are Epson 340, Epson Picturemate, and Lexmark 730. So far everything else seems to work OK. As I have time I will get more into it. By the way I am using Firefox ver. 3.11 I think it is as I have not upgraded to 3.5 in the Linux yet.

Hi, sorry this is a bit brief but please try using the proper Ubuntu forums

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Links?action=show&redirect=Signpost%2FQuestions#help

It sounds like you need to install "cups" from the "package manager" which, in Ubuntu, is

System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager

Good luck with this

Tom :)
