Are you able to use Wireless Printers with Peppermint...or must they be wired only?

If you haven't already done so, please open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run the following command:

then copy what was returned in the terminal and post it back here.

Yes you can use Wireless printers .. how easy it is to set up depends on the printer.

What make/model are we talking about ?

I don't currently have a wireless printer..thinking of getting one., Is there a good wireless brand to get.. like Epsom, Canon etc? I currently have a wired Canon MP250.

HP .. pretty much all HP's will work and are easy to configure.

That said Samsung (at least their lasers) are also a good bet.

But the best thing to do would probably be to look around for one, then mention the make/model here so we can check before you buy.
