Here is what Linuxprinting has to say about the LX300+

http://openprinting.org/show_printer...son-LX_300plus

They consider it a paper weight. They are usually correct. So unless you are up to writing a print driver, it may be time to consider another printer. If you have to print under linux, ( who doesn't ) be sure to look at Linuxprintig.org for printers known to work, before you buy one.

I recently bought a Brother laser ( black and white ) Brother supplied a driver, works as advertised. Less than $200 at Staples.
