I was doing all this different stuff (adding/removing PPAs, installing/uninstalling software), trying to get my printer to work. I want to find out what I did right, so that I can do it again, and, more importantly, so that other people can do it. How do I figure out what I did right?

  • Err... start for telling us what you did. – Braiam Dec 5 '13 at 0:39
  • I added and removed a bunch of PPAs. The last three things I ran were: sudo apt-get install printer-driver-gutenprint sudo restart cups sudo apt-get install cups-backend-bjnp – user155708 Dec 5 '13 at 2:48
  • Can you edit your question instead and add that information? – Braiam Dec 5 '13 at 2:52

If you used the command line, then you can see the last entered commands in the .bash_history file located at your home folder (~).

I can't think in something else right now. If you know more, feel free to add it here
