    yes HP has good linux support. and they make good printers as well.

    samsung printers are also supported, though their linux support is not as commited as HP's. as i said above a PPA can solve samsung compatibility easilly. the only reason i bought a samsung is because it fit on the table (it was smaller than HP with same price). i use it on XP maschine but all linux mashcines connected to it can print on it.

    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    Just because Kodak doesn't support Linux, doesn't mean there are no Linux drivers for your printer/scanner. Just try adding the printer on the Printing program and see if it works.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
