A printer capable of handling Linux - Any recommedations


[link to this post]
 
Perhaps I've been lucky but I've operated for nearly ten years with printers which seemed very happy with Linux (now Mint 17). However, the present one (Eastman Kodak Hero 5.1 AiO) died last week from the power supply point of view and I'm finding it impo0ssible to repair. Evidently, I'm going to have to buy a replacement; does anyone have a recommendation?

Any thoughts would be helpful.

I'm pretty sure that all printer manufacturers provide drivers for Linux. Take your pick.

Then possibly you could point to a Brother DCP J315W driver for Linux.

I've had Mint 15 running an HP Officejet 6700 Premium wireless for a while now and previously a Brother MFC620CN via ethernet on Mepis.

HP Deskjet 2510 All-in-One works for me on Linux Mint 13 and 17.
The Linux driver for it is available at http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/gethplip.html

Nope - At first it would not install, just gave the common Ubuntu "File or folder not found" error when the dpkg was called. Got it installed in the end, but does not work with the network printer.

I know this is a bit late, but I just got a canon IP7250 and it works fine with mint even in Wi-fi, I presume most of Canon printers will.
But the printer I got is only a printer, no scanner.
