Well, I am giving up on getting my Canon PIXMA ip1600 working under 8.10.


I am looking for a lower end inkjet printer with just two inks (B&W and color) that will work with 8.10 right out of the box.

I don't mind HP brand and am open to any suggestions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance. Bob.

Hewlett Packard is the main answer you will get most of the time as HP releases drivers for linux while others dont.

Brother is a less-known brand, but I've heard good things about them as well. I used to like HP, but they have gone severely downhill in terms of build quality. I would not buy a HP printer.

HP 7710/20 is cheap & has good specs.

I've had luck with several different Epson Color Inkjet Printers and for Black Laser, Brother HL-2070n works great in addition to HP Lasers.
