How to setup and configure a Printer on Ubuntu or Fedora Linux


A couple of weeks ago my father asked me to buy a small printer for home. There I have a desktop that runs Ubuntu. The first thing that struck me was where I was going to find printers that are supported on Linux? I know, the question may seems absurd to many of you, but it was the first time I was dealing with printing and earlier I had faced a lot of troubles with my Ethernet and Wireless NICs. So, it left me wondering if there are any printers supported.
Anyway, before choosing a printer I decided to see how they are actually managed on Linux and came to know about this wonderful Linux Foundation’s initiative - OpenPrinting. I was really happy to see that something already exists which aims to bring printing support on Linux.
