    This is the question I was wanting to ask and I was wondering if you have had any responses or any success with this. I have a Canon LBP-810 and a Canon LBP-1120 and neither run on Ubuntu 6.06, 7.10 or 8.10. I have searched and tried everything without success and now I am looking to throw out everything called Canon and replace it with something that will install and run properly on Intrepid. Let's hope we get an answer to your (and my) question.

    I have a Kyocera 1000 Eco which has been problem free. I have that connected to my router which has a print server built in and 3 computers which all print fine connected to the router.

    What you're really asking is what machines are CUPS compatible. You will find this of interest:

    HP seems to be pretty good. Here's a couple more:

    Thank you so much for that response. I have also in the meantime found these two sites particularly helpful and worth consulting.

    and

    The general concensus seems to be that HP is the best choice.

    I do have a Canon MP-220 and it works evetho openprinting says it is a paperweight...

    I got the Canon MP240 up and running -and scanning- with Canon's new Linux drivers. The thread is here:

    Nice printer, good scanner.

    HP lines up very nicely with CUPS, and you don't have to worry about the bloatware that comes with for Windows!!!
