I am a newbie regarding Ubuntu, and I have installed a PC for playing around and testing it.
The problem is that the Epson printer I have (AcuLaser CX11NF, a network/usb color laser with fax & scanner) does not seem to be supported by Ubuntu nor by Epson (for Linux).
Anyone has a link or suggestion for this ?

Epson does in fact offer Linux printer drivers for the AcuLaser CX11NF. I've had bad experience with Avasys drivers, but for this model it seems that you have no choice, and there are success reports for your model and distribution.

Thanks Gilles, but gee that's so complicated. They ask if i want to get Suse or Fedora, if I wwant to print via CUPS or LPRng. I have no cue. Here is the link, if someone else needs it: avasys.jp/lx-bin2/linux_e/mfp/DL2.do –  iDevlop Sep 29 '10 at 14:07
    
For the scanner, I found I have to use Debian, for Ubuntu. But for the printer, I am lost. –  iDevlop Sep 29 '10 at 14:12
    
@iDevlop: Welcome to the wonderful world of proprietary software... Ubuntu is closest to Debian, and uses CUPS. –  Gilles Sep 29 '10 at 18:50
