    Have anybody tried out the printing system in 9.04


    My greatest problem with Intrepid was the malfunctioning printing system. I have an old HP LaserJet 6L, which works with almost all distributions but Ubuntu Intrepid. There were troubles with printing since 6.10. I wonder if they solved it this release. Thanks for any shared experience!

    Have you ever tried HPLIP?
    Your HP LasterJet 6L should work fine almost perfectly

    as an option you can use ljet4 or gutenprint drivers.
    but HPIJS is recommanded.
    Never make any misteaks.

    yeah I think that with a little patience you could get it working in Intrepid but you can easily try the live Jaunty distro and see what you get

    Well, I'm right now wrestling with Xubuntu 9.04. I can't install my HP 6L printer, or I simply don't know how to do, but the system argues around a cups error. Still not solved printing?

    Still nothing. I told you, Ubuntu is an idiot for printing!
