Thank you very much for your soon reply -- I was just working on the installations. The printer seems to be working on the Windows so let us hope it will work OK with the VirtualBox&Ubuntu too.

Earlier 10-15years ago I used Windows&Ubuntu parallell but then I had to rebuild my PC completely and for some reason never installed the Ubuntu again - perhaps too complicated -- but I never gave up the idea skipping windows. Now I re-installed system&programs again and decided to start working with Ubuntu again. Next step is to learn using Apache&SQLite for my need of databases. I used to work with MSAccess but am not interested in spending money on purchasing and was told that SQLite is easier and not so heavy as MySQL. Do not know yet. Anyway I find this interesting and think it is a healthy exercise for an old brain too (75y)

So any guides and ideas how I shall proceed to get SQLite(3) to run in Ubuntu are welcome.
Kind regards
Pertti Rönnberg

If you are running Ubuntu (or anything else as far as I know) in a Virtual
Box, you don't have access to any hardware unless it is recognized by the
host system. But if your printer functions properly on the host system (and
you set up virtualbox carefully), it should work fine on Ubuntu.

The issues I encounter all seem to be related to LOWriter, so if you have no
issues with that on your host, it seems to me fairly likely that you should
be ok. In any case, if it doesn't work you haven't lost anything.

Just as a matter of curiosity, are you looking to a linux distro just to use
SQLite and Apache? Or was there some other consideration driving that
