The CD will be for Windows. Ubuntu is not Windows, it is a distro of Linux. Most cameras (if its a point and shoot) then try f-spot.

What make/model is the printer?

You only need the CD if you are using Windows. Ubuntu is not Windows so forget the CD. F-spot should be able to talk to the camera. I suggest you read the manual to see if it can be made to appear as a plain storage device

Please cease spamming
