I know that in that case I definitely had to go to the registry, so I imagine that this is still the case. But I guess you’ll see them once the cover is opened. Most other brand common usb printers also just plug in and work as well, but HP makes the most effort, hence deserves preferential treatment at purchase. Windows try’s to mitigate some of it retardedness by automatically saving “restore” points when you install hardware, you may well be able to achieve my manual instruction better by restoring to a restore point, if the system made one at a convenient point in time, which I think it would have. You will find there is a lot of Windows centric IT advise out there of dubious quality, mostly it is just poor quality IT staff that really don’t know what they are on about, they have usually only used Windows. Now for my fee more rant: Ask a question and give support.

Any tips on where to look in the registry would be appreciated seeing as it being such a jungle that it is! Just plug the stupid printer in, wait 5 seconds for Linux to automatically configure it and Unless your hardware is in more than 34 pieces, in which case its probably smashed!
