Before you uninstall, is your printer attached directly to your machine? Make and model of printer would help - perhaps we can get you sorted?

I always find that this is the best way to install a printer if you have issues using the graphical interface:

1. Open a Terminal (Ctrl+ Alt+ T or Menu | Accessories | Terminal)

2. Enter the following command:

Code: Select all
sudo sytem-config-printer


If the driver is present in Zorin it should work - also bear in mind that most OS's are aimed at the US - and that includes 'Letter' settings for printers - you need to change it to A4 before you attempt to print!

If the printer driver is not present, tell us what make and model it is and we will direct you where to get it. :D

Hi, Glad you are keeping it - have you tried other settings with in the driver? e.g., RGB, CMYK?
