Next I set up the printer connection. This was also surprisingly easy, the Linux Foundation web site has a section on printers, I simply selected the model and downloaded the recommended driver. After installing I was ready to go. Mr lo-fi also has an external webcam (he uses it to Skype and talk banjos with his friends). Again, with a little bit on online research (bless you forums!) we got this connected too. Boring stuff done and dusted in an afternoon.
