Re: dell 968 printer on linux ubuntu 9.4

I am also trying to get my new 968 w printer to be seen by my ubuntu laptop. 

 

I am using the printer via an ether net cable and router.  I think though, since even windows requires dell software to print, that someone will have to port that software to work with ubuntu. 

 

I was kind of hoping since Dell sells Ubuntu laptops, that they would create a patch, or a separate download for this printer, but so far I have not found one, or a workaround.
