Ubuntu – 18.04 Ubuntu Operating System does not give me a driver for Dell Mono B1160 Printer


I would appreciate any help regarding installation of a working driver which will enable my Dell mono B1160 printer to operate. Too many hours I have spent trying to print from my Ubuntu computer to this Dell B1160 printer.
Thanking all who have a suggestion on the driver and installation.

I had exactly the same problem and here's the solution:

  1. Download the driver archive from here:
  2. Unpack it and go to ~/Downloads/B1160_B1160w_UnifiedLinuxDriver_1.01/cdroot/Linux

  3. Execute the installation script sudo sh install.sh

  4. Remove all printers from the system, including the one that was added during the installation.
  5. Click Add new printer and choose Dell B1160 Mono Laser Printer in your printer driver settings
  6. Enjoy
