When I moved to a new place, my dell printer started to give an error message “Error 2200” every it starts. I tried to google around and found the solution on this page:

Basically the steps are:

  1. Switched off the printer.
  2. Unplugged the power.
  3. Press the power button for 15 seconds.
  4. plugged in back the power.
  5. Turn on.

Connecting to Network Printer from Linux desktop

I am using Kubuntu Hardy for my office desktop and the printer is a network printer. To setup a new printer in Kubuntu, I need first to check the properties from a windows PC. In windows XP, go to Printers and Faxes, and right click the installed network printer there, then choose “Properties”. The following information are useful:

  • click “Sharing” tab and take note the “Share name”
  • click on the “Ports” tab and take note the IP address

After this go to your Kubuntu OS, and use the printer wizard. Choose TCP/IP printer, and enter the IP address as you have noted before. Follow the wizard until finish.
