Yesterday my printer went pfffffft, so I got a new Epson Stylus C84. Shut down machine, took out old printer, plugged in new C84 to a USB slot and rebooted. Boot-up was interrupted by a red and blue screen that said I removed my old printer and did I want to remove the configuration. Yes. It then said I had a new printer and did I want to configure. Yes. After log in, I found a .doc file and it printed perfectly.
Today, I received a new Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. Same deal. After adjusting volume conrols from zero to full, I found an .mpg and it played perfectly. Classical music is playing now, beautifully from Shoutcast.
Now I want to know, isn't linux and FC2 for the hobbiest who needs to research, yum, rpm, tar.gz, .src, sweat, curse and kick the cat? Is it supposed to be easier
than winblows? Where did I go wrong?
