We got a free Dell 725 printer when I bought a desktop a few months ago but
we can't make our Windows ME (an old laptop we want to use in the office) to
talk to it, we can't install Windows XP on that ancient laptop, and now that
I wanted to finally install Ubuntu on it I discovered on the web that this
printer won't play with Linux.
Has anyone managed to make this printer work with Linux or will I have to
buy a better printer (or better laptop, which is a bit silly because the
printer isn't supposed to be good anyway)?
We are just trying to minimize our expenses on this stuff (the combo of
laptop+printer away from our home office).
