  • open front pull-down cover, and one under it - push down on grey loops gently and put in inkjet cartridges.
  • Put paper in at bottom, only hold 50 sheets or so.
  • turn on, wait.
  • open terminal window, type sudo ls and enter pw.
  • open browser, get download from

  • On printer, turn off and on again just in case.
