    compatible digitalizer/printer/photocopier


    I'm runing an Ubuntu derivated Distro and I'm going to need a digitalizer. My problem is that I'm not aware of what is the one (make and model) whose drivers already exist in the Linuis arena.
    Any help on this will be much appreciated.
    Thanks a lot.

    If you mean scanner / printer / copier then pretty much anything by HP will run as will canon and most of the big brands.

    I have hooked up a number of different brands and have yet to find one that does not work. At the moment I run a HP Office Jet 6000n as a network machine and it works very well and is a natural on the install.

    I agree that HP is your best options though most brands work with a high level of success. I say HP for two reasons, one is biased: all my computers, printers, webcams, etc are HP, (well untill recently when I switched my laptop to an LPC+ TuxBook). But more importantly, HP has the greatest number of Linux drivers that are udated on a consistanly regular basis. This means that almost all of the latest HP devices will run in Linux with little to know extra configuration or problems.
