    Printer question


    I can't hook my lex z23 printer up to my linux system because there are no drivers for it......actually there is, for SuSe and Red Hat I think. The thing is I am running Slackware 9.0. Is is wise to install the driver [which was made for Red Hat] on the slackware system?????Would it work????

    ---thanks

    What form is your driver in?

    If it's a ppd file then you can use cups.

    And if it's an rpm, there's a program called rpm2targz that will allow you to unpack the rpm and install it on slack.
