I am looking to get a cheap HP printer model number d1420. It is a USB printer and I am wondering if it would be compatible with 8.04 Ubuntu. Do I need any special drivers such as HPLIP or anything else. Any info would be appreciated.

I found this information by Googling "hp d1420 linux" and clicking on the first hit, which was the OpenPrinting database. :)
