Hi Pertti:

I also am one of the old crowd, so I understand.

The database question is probably going quite off-topic (although still part
of this forum), so I'll just make a few comments.

The first is that, since you are already running LibreOffice, can I presume
that you've looked at its "Base" component. If you notice, there are lots of
discussions about that on this forum, so you should have little problem
getting answers to most questions. The manuals for all the components of
LibreOffice are also available for free download, so that is a plus as well.

I personally don't use Base, as I'm an old database person and prefer to use
"real" database management products. Although most of these cost actual
money, a few of them have free personal-use products. If you go to and click on the "Oracle Installation
Tutorial for 64 bit Ubuntu" you'll find a pdf I put together on how to
acquire, load, and use Oracle XE (the personal version) on Ubuntu (it's
actually intended for Red Hat Linux, but isn't at all difficult to get
running on Ubuntu). If you're looking to "dig in" to relational theory and
all that good stuff, Oracle is a much better choice than some of the
"personal" products out there.

Good Luck keeping the brain cells functioning, and let us know how the
Printer situation turns out ...
