Is there a driver or compatible driver for the Dell AIO 926 printer so that I can use this printer, this is a USB printer but everything that is currently set as the default for Dell such as drivers that are pre-installed just will not work, this is always causing cups to not function correctly. Any help would be appreciated on this.

:cool:

you may be able to find the ppd file for the printer amongst the files on the driver disk. using this you should be able to configure cups to print to the printer as postscript.

no, should be fairly straight forward. just go to http://localhost:631 (from memory) and go through the steps on there :)

I took a look at localhost:631 like you suggested and all went well with that but I am still having an issue finding the PPD file it isnt on the install disk any suggestion where else I could look for the PPD file ?

Thanks so much for the help

you may need to use the foomatic driver. read http://openprinting.org/show_driver.cgi?driver=Postscript for more info.
