That’s a good point. Fedora comes with SELinux enabled now, correct?

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.
