    Is that printer connected to your parallel port, or is it one of those USB printers?

    As for that graphics card of yours, download this file:
    http://www.powervr.com/Drivers/Linux...use81.i386.rpm

    Install it with this command:
    Code:
    su -c "rpm -Uhv powervr-2.00.20-516.suse81.i386.rpm"

    I almost guessed so. Those USB printers almost always make a mess of things. The thing is that very few of them follow any standards, they register themselves as having a vendor-specific interface class and therefore they require special drivers to be used, and almost all vendors only make drivers for Windoze. If you're lucky, someone has either made a driver for this printer, or HP has a semi-standardized protocol for all their printers, and someone has made a driver for that protocol. In that case, you should be able to find it somewhere. Remember, google is your friend.
