Hello Nigel,

Sorry that it took so long before you received a reply.
I have been working on learning about Kubuntu for 3 weeks
now and have not advanced far yet. When I installed Kubuntu
6.4 everything was taken care of, my hardware was
recognised and the drivers installed, even my epson scanner
and the DSL router worked. 

With v 6.10 I had to do a lot more work to get things
working, not that I mind, but when you're not too familiar
with the OS it is a drag.

Thank you for your suggestion, I'll look for the Kprinter
Wizard and see if I can find the R300 driver there.

Regards, Max
