1. Just hook up your printer to your linux machine and reboot your system
2. your system will automatically detect and installs your printer.
3. If not, then goto control panel .. find printers settings from there and manually add the printer. You may have to select your exact printer model while adding your printer manually to the linux machine.

I hope this is helpful to you.

I want a driver 4 sharp ar5316 in ubantu ultimate edition 2.3

Hi there, Sharp AR5316 comes with installation CD when new. This gives those with computers a chance to use it as a printer only when they correctly install it. They quote several operating system that it can accommodate and unfortunately, ubuntu is not among them because it is only compatible with windows like windowsxp. For you to use it as a printer, please install windowsxp on your computer and follow the instructions on it. Best wishes.

No grub loader

You havn't mentioned whether Ubantu inquired about the grub settings during its installation or not. If Windows doesn't have the boot loader than you can manually check it by looking at the boot flag set at a particular partition. This can be done by using an open source media GParted live cd, which can be used by booting from your CD Drive and then you can check and also set the boot flags at a particular partition. You can find it here: LiveCD-Download-8864.html"> After burning, boot from it and in the GParted menu set the boot flag for the Ubantu partition, then you can use your your Ubantu, only if installed correctly, may be you can't use windows at that time, then remove the boot flag and windows will be back. Try installing Ubantu again and check the settings for grub bootloader.
