Question 1: Do the various PCLINUXOS desktops (KDE, XFCE, etc..) have the same, or different, hardware recognition abilities?
That is, if one recognizes (or does not recognize) a certain printer would the others do the same?
Question 2: Is there a difference between running as a live CD or a hard disk install? That is, if a printer can be recognized (or not recognized) in a live CD session, would it be the same on a full install?
My assumption was that this in the kernel, but it differs between distros, so I would like the opinion of someone who knows.
