My 10-year-old deskjet being out of ink and probably not worth a replacement cartridge (it works, but makes some mechanical noise lately), I am considering a reasonable replacement, preferably with scanning/copy possibilities.
I tried to get Photosmart C4280, but while I was trying a faulty printcap on it, it lost its mind permanently (says 'incompatible print cartridges', and does not respond to the button combinations that HP support thinks should reset it). Besides, you can either attach it as ulpt or uscanner device, or play with hplip drivers as a generic device, but it seems too confusing. It was a waste of time and money for me and I am going to return it. Requirements: 1. Reasonable physical size (should not be much larger than the old deskjet). 2. Either network/lpd or USB, scanner should be well supported by sane. If used via USB, it should be a compound device (i.e. printer, scanner and, if there, the umass device should appear as separate devices to avoid kld-loading and unloading modules). I heard Epsons show up as compound devices? any HP laserjets? 3. Reasonable maintenance cost (maybe a laser printer, I do not care for color printing that much). _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
