does it show up but not print, or is it not showing up at all..

there is a bug posted for feisty and this printer, if its showing up we can go down that route.

it has been reported that if you open a browser and go to localhost:631 (also known as the cups administrator page, CUPS is common unix print system)

select new printer on lpt1 and select by brand and model..

hope that works.
