Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

What printers work well with Linux?


I've just set up SuSE 9.1 Personal in a dual-boot configuration with Windows XP. I have a Brother MFC 3100C printer connected to this box (it's a networked printer) for which I can not find any Linux drivers. Since that printer is a piece of junk anyway I'm considering getting a new printer, but obviously want to get one that works well with Linux (good driver, etc). I'd like to have a fax incorporated but that's not absolutely necessary.

Any suggestions?

Scott

It depends on the distro and drivers you can compile. My hp 952c is 2 years old and it works!
