    hp,printers(a thank you)

    hp aint they just great to deal with,

    i bought a hp 300 series because everyone said they work just fine with linux,but i could not get mine to run no matter how hard i tried and man did i try,
    so i sent of an email to hp and detailed what i had done steps i had taken,that was a week or so ago.
    got an email this morning with a link on it with a new driver,and they ask if i was still having problems download the new driver and give it a go..
    so i downloaded it and yes you guessed it it works i now have a printer scanner copier that works with linux.

    whoot.whoot


    thanks hp( i have sent them a thankyou email)

    it is on there web site i used the new version hplip-1.6.12 and it worked fine.

    as for working for them if they had an office at esperance w.a. then that would be possible ..but alas i am a simple retired chef kicking back and enjoying life....

    my HP printers work fantastically well with linux. probably the easiest pieces of "hardware" to set up out of them all. unfortunately, my HP computer isn't as easy.
