Install parallel port

Hello everyone I am new here … is been a honor to be here…
Thank you … I got one question I would like to know How to install a port parallel card and IF I need the drivers, how to configure to print.
Thank you
New in Linux system

Welcome @falcon. Installing a parallel port card is as easy as slapping the card into any free PCIe slot. You likely won’t need additional drivers for the card.

Configuring it will be less straight forward, you’ll need to configure LPD or CUPS, parallel port printers aren’t exactly plug and play.
