Hey all,
started using Descent OS but can't seem to find how to install a (usb) printer.
Under Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Mint ( all Debian based ) it is very easy though, has this been overlooked in Descent OS ?
regards

Hey again,

I find via Synaptic a "system-config-printer-gnome" package and that did the job.
Now it's exactly like Ubuntu and the rest.

Oh, good. I add a printer all the time, but I usually add the driver manually because it's a canon. Glad it worked for you after installing Smile
