driver software for the HP C4100 printer


I have tried to call the HP company to get them to e-mail me the Linux software so that I can install their printer, which I just bought. It is a HP C4100 all-in-one printer. They only include the windows & Mac discs. Can you help me so that I do not have to return it? I got the run around with their phone trees. Is it possible to use this printer with Linux? We have Open SUSE 10.2 Thanks so much. Can it be e-mailed so that I won't have to go back to Staples with this printer?

Have a look here --> http://openprinting.org/show_printer...otoSmart_C4100

The printer is known to work perfectly, according to Linuxprinting.org.

Since this is a multi-function device, you will have to look into the scanner function.

The driver is available from HP.

I recently bought a printer from Staples, and the store found out for me if there was a driver for linux. I bought a Brother and the driver was on the CD that came with it. What a shock...

Personally, I like to stay away from multi function devices, too many problems finding the drivers. Only problem is I clutter up my desktop...
