Thanks, oz, I'll tell the kid to try that. Will let you know what happens on the PC side as well.
Just no need to have more than one printer these days, IMO. I do have a duplicate that I bought for myself sitting in the closet as a spare.

I setup both of my laptops, my daughter's laptop, and my desktop as dual boot computers. Running Linux and Windows. There are times (although they are pretty rare) that I need to boot into Windows. For the most part we are loving Ubuntu around here. My desktop takes about 20 - 25 minutes to completely boot into Windows. It boots into Ubuntu in about 30 seconds. Me like.

When I retired my old HP desktop I decided to completely move it to Linux and of course I found a plethora of good, free software....including photo management apps. It was fun. Then, one day I walked into the local Staples store and there sat a stack of HP bundles which I just could not resist...at a price I couldn't pass up. So I bought one. That was about 1 1/2 years ago. Then I gave the old one to a friend down in Texas to replace his really old unit. We reloaded the Win XP that came with it and we added a bigger power supply and a new higher powered video card so he can run his high powered flight simulator programs. I had already replaced the single core Athalon chip with a dual core Athalon unit. Oh well....I've got enough PC's around here....more than I can use.
Hey.....That Guatemalan volcano that has been simmering blew its stack with several erruptions today. Oh my.......12/21/12 .....she's a comin'.

Ubuntu 12.04 has had a lot of improvements and is well worth giving it a try a lot including myself run in a dual boot configuration with Windows 7 either by partition or using Wubi.
