Has anyone had any success getting Dell printers to work with cups on Gentoo? I recently had issues (forum post) trying to use Dell's proprietary drivers to work on my system which destroyed my system and required me to reinstall Gentoo, now that I have re-installed Gentoo I still want to have the ability to print on my computer without having to reboot to windows. I have a Dell B1165nfw multi-function monochrome laser network attached/USB printer.

Did you see http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/peripherals/f/3528/t/19582644?
According to http://chaosclub.org/?p=1542 it should work.

thanks for the reply, after dealing with those drivers and having them completely destroy my Gentoo install I am wary of having that file anywhere near my computer.
