To all who are having problems with Ubuntu 20.04: Save your data and wipe out the system hard drive. Install 20.04 fresh. Most, if not all, of your problems will be solved if you know how to connect peripheral in Ubuntu. I upgraded from 18.04 on one machine and installed fresh on another. I have had no problems at all on either machine. In fact, they boot up in seconds and shut down in less time than before. Just thought you would like to know.
That is extreme and a lot of time.
I guess that worked for you.
But really, in 2020? Ubuntu has been around since 2004 or so, 16, SIXTEEN years and they can’t seem to get something as fundamental as printing right. It’s a joke.
People have got lives to lead, life is short, we don’t want to waste time poncing around fiddling with this, trying that package, reinstalling this, and that.
And no, we’re not lazy for not wanting to do that, nor wanting to learn the intricacies of Linux etc. A virtue shouldn’t be made out of complexity.
We just want to print and get on with our lives and do more interesting things. It’s not rocket science.
