Since my "expertise" is much closer to Thomas' than the rest of you
Linux cognoscenti, may I be permitted to add something just in case
he isn't aware of it yet.

Brands matter. I never did get my Epson or Canon printer/scanners to
work on Linux. I gave them away.

I would happily accept this kind of gift, as my Epson is working perfectly, including the scanner, and this since I first plugged it, 5-6 years ago.
I am not sure my Ubuntu were so special all the time, upgrade after upgrade, nor my USB cable.
