I am trying to download an hp printer driver but I need to know the specific type of Linux operating system I have. How do I find that?

hi bruce2009
try this to get os specific information
ls /etc/*-release #if succesful then
cat /etc/-release
or
lsb_release -a
--------------------------------------
to get information about the kernel
uname -a
or
cat /proc/version
latter command also prints the version of the compiler used to compile the kernel
