I have been trying and trying to install our HP Deskjet on Linux Mandrake. I've had linux for a few months and like it, but if I can't install a printer then I'll have to give up on linux. When I run the setup it there is a list of backends to choose from, but I can't click on any of them except the "class of printers" option. When I do it gives me a box with no options, when I click next it tells me I have to choose a class. THERE ARE NONE!
Then I was searching for a driver and found one, but it would not compile.
I'm afraid it's back to Microlimber for me, unless I can get a printer to work.
