My dear old Laserjet 5N finally having died, I bought an HP Laserjet
P1109w to replace it. I have managed to install it to the extent that
it's recognised (USB connection, not wireless) but the problem is that it
apparently needs a *proprietary* plug-in to print properly.
I have H-Ps installer, and everything goes OK up to the point at which
it goes to an unspecified H-P site to download the plug-in.
Installer? Plug-in? Are you using CUPS? Is the P1109w not in the CUPS
I picked up a P3015 for $150; it runs perfectly under CUPS and is the best
printer I ever have used. I am using the Ethernet interface.
If we are putting in plugs for other printers, then Sumsung has brilliant
support for Linux, once you get past first level support. They have a chap
(Linux Support Department!), whose permission I have to give out his name and
contact details, who will stick with it to help until the printer/all-in-on
works in Linux, if the supplied Linux drivers don't work. (I've always
managed to get printers going - it was an all-in-one I needed his help for.)
Ok, but try to use them (the Samsung's printers) on Linux ARM, MIPS or
even PowerPC. Their installers are designed for x86 CPUs.
-1 to me so I tell to everybody to avoid samsung printer not seen by CUPS.
Brother's Printer has a better support to my knowledge.
