My crappy compaq printer broke yesterday and I'm looking for a new printer. I would like to get one that would work natively in linux, because I always had to save files, then reboot to windows to print.
Can anyone recommend a good printer under $200 that works natively with linux? Or tell me what to look for, so I can tell which printers would work natively?
inkjets: I use an Epson r200, phenominal printer, but I have been partial to Epson ever since they came up with their cold ink printing via crystal technology. No one else is even close to the quality and speed with instant drying. Everyone else can smear immediately, and this lasts with most for a few minutes. Mine can also print directly on CD, and with gimpprint, this is quite easy. Take a look at the ratings and quality of all manufacuturers for inkjets, Epson wins.
