Thank you both for the great information in your posts!  This gives me a great place to start from.  It is funny trying to troubleshoot something without actually seeing it right in front of me... Before leaving work today I reviewed with her again what exactly it was doing.  It may actually be that she is out of printer ink!  Funny, I thought... I will update as I find out more!

Thanks again!

Good afternoon,

I have a printer compatibility question for anyone that may be able to help...
I installed Peppermint 5 for a co-worker of mine that needed a functional OS (XP giving her fits) on a low budget.  Anyways, Peppermint worked like a charm.  I had her PC for a few weeks and essentially made sure it would do what she needed it to without crashing.  The only thing I did not (and was not able to) test was printer compatibility.

She's running an old Dell Dimension (can't remember the series #) with a P4 and 1 GB RAM.  The printer is a Kodak ESP 6150 All-in-One.  I have limited information other than she plugs it into the back of the computer and cannot print anything.  She lives out in the middle of no-where and it is difficult for me to actually

My question is, are there known compatibility (driver) issues with Kodak printers and Peppermint 5 OS?  I did a bit of searching on the forums, etc. but could not come up with anything substantial.  I'm hoping it is just a matter of stepping her thru the Add Printer process, but I wanted to cover all my bases and make sure there's not going to be some horrendous work-around that I ultimately have to do for her! :)

Thanks to the devs for all their hard work.  It is a wonderful product.

Good morning,

I came across this topic as I was researching how to get my own printer installed and working...

I have encountered the following message when I try to intall HPLIP:

family@family-peppermint ~ $ apt install hplip-gui -y
[sudo] password for family:
sudo: unable to open /var/lib/sudo/family/1: No such file or directory
W: Not using locking for read only lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock
E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!  If I need to start my own topic regarding this problem I'm good with that too... just let me know.  :)
