Some HP devices I have working fine with Linux are:
- HP Deskjet 500: It works fine after more than 11 years of daily printing.
- HP Scanjet 5200C: It is now connected via a USB port. It works fine
as a copier or a scanner.
- HP Officejet V40: HP made drivers for it. HP is now committed to
Linux. HP is making Linux drivers for everything.
- It works fine as a copier and scanner.
- It prints very well both color and B&W.
- It does not work as a fax sender/receiver (from the PC) yet (
Winmodem???). You can send/receive faxes manually.
HP Deskjet 692C: It was printing very well in color and B&W. It is
broken. I sent to a local HP representative to have it fixed... It is
I have also been able to see images and videos directly from a HP
digital camera connected to the USB port and mounted as a scsi hard disk.
I also have a 128MB Immation Mini disk ( key disk) that plugs in to the
USB port as a scsi disk also.
Another USB devices: my Palm m130 and a CreativeLabs Webcam.
My headache: The CNR AC97 modem. Works fine with cu and minicom.
Freezes with PPP.
