    The Linux Distro that I will be using is Zorin OS 9 when it comes out. However, I will need a printer that will work with Linux. (Ubuntu).

    Normally, I use an all in one printer. So I will need it to scan and save the scan as PDF. I am not looking to have special code written just to have this to work or have commands in place.


    Thanks in advance.

    I recently bought a n Epson WF-3540 and am very pleased with it. They have gone down about $40 since I bought mine, too -- to around $120

    I have an Epson Stylus CX 8400. The ink is terribly priced but from an OS standpoint it works well with Linux. As long as the escpr driver is used.

    My HP cheapo printer works great with all the Linux distros that I've played with! (Haven't try with Gentoo yet) it even does the wireless nicely
