You're not that far off topic actually.  Stuff that works in Ubuntu 
might work in Redhat (and vice versa).

But I know Unbuntu 9.10 was different at the time then Fedora - RedHat 
was a big push for the horrors of systemctl, the network command stack 
was (and still is) different.

Even so, there's been a big change since 2009 - systemctl among them.

As I stated, my printer that once worked in Fedora 20 but I haven't been 
able to get it to work since 24 - it seems to be something in SELinux 
because turning it off enabled it to communicate with the printer but 
... I said heck with it and spun a windows 7 vm with a shared folder.

Things change.  Oh well.
