I'd like to get a good laser printer for printing reports with no color. I read that Brother makes quality laser printers around $100...like the HL-2140. I then went to http://openprinting.organd saw that printer was only mostly supported in Linux.
Any one have any suggestions of laser printers that are still on the market that are Linux compatible?
I've purchased both Samsung (ML-1740) and Brother (sorry, don't remember model) printers for use with CentOS; they have gotten along nicely for my purposes. In both cases the price was ~ $100 - maybe a little more. Just do some homework in advance on linuxfoundation.org/en/OpenPrinting as you have been.
De Brother HL-2140 is fully supported, but you need to use proprietary drivers. These driver work fine on Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, openSUSE and Mandriva. You can find them on the website http://solutions.brother.com/linux
