Hello Johntb,

If it works on one Linux distro it will work on any, you just need the right driver. Look at the printer config in Ubuntu to see which driver it is using - https://localhost:631 - then make sure the same driver is installed on your preferred distro.

The desktop environment has no bearing on this.
