1  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: HP Deskjet 940c printer on: May 21, 2010, 06:10:31 AM

Thank you John A and Lisa for your replies.  I will look at trying Pardus 2009.2. The only "thorn in my side" Wink  is that I need to print and I like SOUND.   I have old printers and I definitely have no intentions of getting new ones any time soon.  So, when it comes to needing to set up an old printer or old sound card you just have to search or ask questions and the help will be there.
Like I said before THESE FORUMS are great for getting answers and help.  There truly are alot of knowledgeable people out there and Linux is a great system to learn if your are "adventurous".  Grin

"Here is an advice : stick to one Linux distribution only and buy a book (paper) about it. Once you are at ease with one distribution, you are easily able to understand the differences between the other ones, and select the one that better suits your needs".
Thank you PhilX for the above advice.  I prefer trying different systems at the same time because I have a son who is an IT specialist that bulit computers for our family so we are blessed to have more than one computer.  Honestly though I am not what people would call a "computer guru".  I just like learning new things.  I also like change.  I wouldn't buy a book because there is enough information on the internet that you can print out and the different forums are great because if you really search and ask questions you can LEARN the linux system and all the differences.   
Again, I thank everyone for giving directions and being very helpful.  I do plan on trying Pardus again in the future. Wink

I am sorry  :'( to say this but I installed VectorLinux and my printer is working.  I had to configure it to work in VectorLinux but it was easier for me to do since I am really new to the linux system (especially the command line).
I do hope that this post does help anyone else wanting to use Pardus and a HP printer.
Maybe I will try Pardus in the future but for now I am sticking to learning VectorLinux, Ubuntu, and Puppy Linux. 
Oh! kalwisti - I have two computers using one printer and the computer that had Pardus 2009 on it had the parallel port for the printer.
Thanks everyone for all the suggestions.  The information was appreciated.

LPT#1 does not show up on my list.  How do I get and and install it?  I'll try this and if this fails then I will have to say good bye to Pardus 2009.  Not that I want to but printing is essential.  My printer works with Ubuntu, Puppy Linux and of course Windows XP.   THANKS EVERYONE for you suggestions. :'(

I tried to setup printer manually using your directions but it appears that my printer does not show up when I select where the pringer is located (serial port #1)
All I see is TODO serial.  Have no idea what this means.
I guess Pardus does not recognize HP Deskjet printer 940c.  I wanted to try Pardus 2009 but I need to print so I will need to use a different Linux operating system. 
I am also very new to the linux system and I do not understand the command line and I do not know how to use commands.  Like I said earlier I want to learn but I need to take it slow before I try to figure out something complicated.
Thank you for your time and help. :'(

 Huh?I am trying to find information in this forum about installing a HP Deskjet 940c printer.  I am a newbie to Pardus and I wanted to try it.  I must also let everyone know that I am slow at learning the linux system and commands but I really like this system and I try until I accomplished learning new things. If someone could be so kind and point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.  Oh! I did try http://localhost:631 but my printer was installed but no printing.
Thanks for the help.
