A knight in shining armour has come to come to cindys aid, and sent this post via email

http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=900635

The problem I have, is that cindy has now sold this printer, to a 91 year old man who has just got his first computer, and he is running Ubuntu (I thought it would work with it, but had no internet access til this week to download the right driver.

Im going to see him the day after tommorow and he will expect his computer and printer working

Does anyone know if gutenprint 5.23 is included in ubuntu?

oh dear.... Sad

Sorry I havent properly updated this problem.

Seems there was a problem (see forum sourceforge post above) with gutenprint (some sort of printing backend/driver pack) where certain types of printers listed as compatable were not. They fixed it in an upcoming release, or its possible to backport. For the moment its possible to "backport" this new gutenprint into existing ubuntu.

One of my clients has a particularly problematic bios which doesnt activate the acpi function on her laptop with ubuntu (tho the latest puppy works fine!). My "plan" is to wait until april and upgrade her to that (9.04 Jaunty Jackalope?) in april, then swap her printer with this one. Backporting in ubuntu is nothing I want to get into!

I wont actually be seeing Austing for a while in any case.
