M'ha arribat aquesta petició que fa un tal Daniel Gnoutcheff sobre quina impressora laser multifunció podria comprar, que pugui funcionar amb un ordinador completament de programari lliure.
Comenta la trampa de Hewlett Packard (HP) amb els seus controladors aparentment lliures que durant la instal·lació introdueixen «firmware» privatiu. __________ I'm using this express-made address because personal addresses aren't masked enough at this mail public archive.

Reenviat-Data: Wed, 14 Mar 2018 19:31:39 +0000 (UTC) Reenviat-De: debian-print...@lists.debian.org Data: Wed, 14 Mar 2018 15:21:54 -0400 De: Daniel Gnoutcheff <gnout...@softwarefreedom.org> A: debian-print...@lists.debian.org Hello, I'm looking for printer/scanner combos to put in some home offices. Some will be printing a lot, so I'd prefer laser over inkjet. Many of the offices are cramped, so I'd prefer a compact multi-function unit over a separate printer and scanner. So far, I've been unable to find a device where both printing *and* scanning works with free drivers. For example, the HP M227fdn is listed (https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index) as "fully supported" by HPLIP with no (proprietary) plugin involved, but apparently that's only for the printer part. Having purchased it, I've learned the hard way that the scanner driver doesn't work without a proprietary plugin. I'm not the first to make that mistake it seems (https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1727056). Has anyone managed to find a multi-function laser printer/scanner where both printing and scanning are supported by free drivers? Thanks, Daniel G.
