Check the manual of the printer. If there are no Linux drivers available for it you can often use a generic driver for it. Many line printers can use a standard emulation type, like IBM proprinter or epson LQ-something etc., and those standard emulations can be used within Linux too. But you'll only find what your printer supports in it's manual, or by asking the manufacturer.
