I have initially posted this question on the installation of the LBP-1120 canon printer only in relation to Ubuntu 11.10.
- I was not able to find a satisfactory answer for 11.10
- Meanwhile I have upgraded to 12.04 and then to 12.10 without being able to install that printer.
- Any new question for these different versions is very likely to be flagged as duplicate of the initial one. (Which now has a more inclusive name in a recent edit as result of comments to the new one that was flagged as duplicate.)
- The installation in 10.10 works, which is great news for me - as it is the first time my printer works well in Ubuntu. I posted that as an answer but cannot really want it as a definitive because I only tested it on a persistent usb while I currently am in 12.10. But that answer might be useful to others, while I could use that persistent usb in order to print...
Should I create separate questions for each Ubuntu version? I am afraid they will be closed as duplicate of the first.
Should different answers be posted for each Ubuntu version? What would be the definitive then? Also, setting one as definitive to the unified question, users may not feel inclined to provide new answers for other versions.
Should only one answer include solutions for all/as many as possible versions? This would be normal given the present unified/inclusive form of the question. Should I ask people to provide edits to my answer instead to give new separate ones?
