I am running the current > Debian/Sarge. Yep. I have bought (recently) the HP PSC 2355 all-in-one, and all is working here (Debian/Sid). Easily configured by CUPS through the Konqueror printer interface, using hpijs and hpoj, with PSC-2350 series driver (just don't forget to install cupsys-bsd if you want to be able to print by lpr commands, which is default for most applications). Scanner usable through sane. Gimpprint OK with the HP Deskjet 900 series driver. There is an LCD panel for stand-alone use, with no computer (direct copy for example). Initially all in japanese, of course, but it can be easily set into many languages. It is just a little hard to figure out how to do it if you can't read japanese, but the english (or other language) manual that can be downloaded on the HP website is quite helpful for it. There are slots for reading all kind of cards (SD, SM, CF, etc..) and they are just seen as regular USB mass storage by Linux, immediatly after they are plugged in the printer. However, comparing to the Epson you are describing, there is no double side printing (gosh, this sounds great... it's a pity I don't have it. I didn't know this was existing for non-laser printers). And I don't know if there is a difference in printing costs (but I must recognize that I find that HP ink cartridges are quite expensive :-/ ). However, it should be noted the printer that are referenced as "mostly" in linuxprinting.org will probably work well ("perfectly" really means it), but just few little things not working. Read well all informations on the site to be aware of the problem to be expected. Actually, my printer is also referenced as "mostly" (and it is actually the PSC-2350 that is referenced, and not exactly the PSC-2355)... but I couldn't really figure out what is lacking. Maybe it should be possible to ask the printer to perform direct copy from the computer rather than from the printer buttons and panel... I do not have any commercial OS to try and see the differences, but they are probably quite useless. RaphaŽl
