I, as I'm sure many of you, have a usb printer. I noticed from reading this forum that the little usb port on the bottem is for hosting devices. I was wondering if it's possible for me to hook up my printer to that and what software would I need to print out my documents and such?

I'm sure you could do a great deal of things with Firefox, Openzaurus, etc... I want the machine I bought, stock kernel, the machine Sharp said "Hey this thing as USB" to work. All the jumping through hoops we do to get things to work is ridiculous.

Ah... but that is based on the premise that sharp does software development smile.gif

Honestly though... I compiled usb printer and scanner support into my kernel (it is a recompile of the fast kernel sources from guylhem, and it runs on a sharp rom with no more trouble than an update and the removal of a module or two). I'll try to test it myself, and post any worthwhile results. So far, I seem to have been lucky about getting stuff going, but not so lucky it goes on the 1st try.

now I just have to find usb printers and scanners....

Did you ever get it to work with a USB printer?
