Title: eee pc notebook needs drivers
Post by: lollyruss on January 25, 2011, 02:28:01 pm
I can't seem to get drivers for my Linux System notebook. I want to connect my Lexmark 1200 series printer to it and my SEAL Record Deck so I can download my records. Many Thanks for any help received

We're going to need more information than you have supplied... can you tell us:

1) Which Linux distribution/version you are using... if unsure, you can usually find this out by opening a terminal and entering:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/*release
or
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/version
or
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/issue
(I'm looking for something like Ubuntu 10.10, or Fedora 13, or any useful info that might let us know)

2) The exact make/model of your printer, such as "Lexmark Optra Color 1200"

3) Some  more info about your "SEAL Record Deck", as I can't find any info about it on the web... if it's a USB turntable, plug it in then open a terminal and enter:
Code: [Select]
lsusb
hit enter, and post back the output.

Can you also unplug the "SEAL Record Deck", wait a few seconds then plug it back in... then in a terminal enter:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail
hit enter, and post back the output.

The model number of your eeePC wouldn't hurt either :)
