Unhappy Printer Question


I have used Linux for emailing but do not have the computer knowledge to do any command line usage. I have Fedora on my laptop. What I need to know is how do I find out which printers are supported? I did check to see if I had HPLIP and I do, with the help of Linux & Hp Imaging. But, I really need to know how to find out what printer will work. I don't know any commands, so don't know what a 'LQ tag' is.
