Trying to print from my laptop (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS) to friends wireless
Lexmark 7000 printer. He is able to print to wireless printer w/his Mac
Nothing was happening at first. I could see his printer on the network,
but it did not show up when I tried to run the troubleshooter.
I finally figured that CUPS was probably not present, as I did not have
a printer when I installed Ubuntu and skipped over the printing stuff. I
then ran sudo apt-get install --reinstall cups. After I print, I get
message Document printed. Document has been sent to Lexmark 7000 for
printing, but the printer does not print. Nothing comes out. It does
print from a Mac laptop though.
Is the problem that different operating systems are trying to operate
the printer w/different drivers?
How do I confirm that a driver is installed?
If so, how do I determine which driver is installed?
