    Question Kodak Hero Printer Compatibility

    Does any one know if the Kodak Hero 9.1 All-in-one printer will work with the latest version of Ubuntu. I looked at this website: http://openprinting.org/printers and did not see it. However, I was not sure if that was a complete listing or not. If anybody knows if it is compatible or not, let me know.

    Well it looks like you can get it to print and maybe scan -

    Thanks.
    I guess I didn't find those topics by searching for it using the search box in the upper right corner. None-the-less it looks like I might want to find a different option.
    I am looking at the Epson WorkForce 845, but the ink is so expensive. As near as I can tell everything should work on Linux.
    Thanks for the help!

    The best printer (for the money) that I've had in years, is the Epson Workforce 645. Large capacity ink cartridges help keep print costs manageable.

    Drivers are available via Epson, and standard Linux scan frontend (simple scan) works great (xsane also works for more options).

    Copy, fax, etc. are driven via hardware menu, and wireless was easy to set up. Built in card reader provides storage access via samba.

    GregA,
    Thanks for the suggestion. The 645 looks like a better option than the 845. They are really close to being the same, and I don't need the additional small perks of the 845. Thanks for saving me about $50. I can use that to buy something more interesting than a printer.
