Printing on Linux


Well you could have knocked me over the head with a feather.

So the Windows 10 1803 update seems to have broken printing on my main gaming rig, or at least I think it has. And normally I don’t have too many issues with Windows updates.

But, in the meantime I had to look for alternatives. I have my Linux machine (Lubuntu), so I plugged my HP All-In-One into it, and after clicking my way through a few dialog boxes, it said it was ready to go.

Printed out a test document, and … all is well.

Granted, the process was a little “Linuxy” in that I still think Windows presents friendlier wizards, but this was nothing that a user with sufficient intelligence couldn’t handle.

Got to admit, seems like Linux is getting better all the time.
