Postby darkpurplelilacs on Sat Jan 26, 2013 2:42 am

Hi I am new to linux mint.
I have a dell all in one printer. A dell photo 926. Could anyone tell me how to install my printer to this program. I have a desktop dell inspiron 5315 computer which has been changed to linux mint. I am not very computer savy and really need help. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
