[LAU] OT: Advice on Linux-compatible printers

Good evening!

I have a Brother HL-L2300D. It claims to be able to do 600 or 1200dpi, 
but all attempts at printing to it using those resolutions fail (the 
printer light just blinks awhile but nothing prints). Other limitations 
of the printer: the driver is 32-bit only and doesn't work on my 64-bit 
system, even with 32-bit support installed. (Also, the Brother printer 
drivers offered for it are ancient.)

Before this, we had a Canon photoprinter that worked fine but cost a 
fortune in ink.

Before the Canon, we had an earlier Brother laser but it decided to leak 
toner all over the interior of the printer.

The last working printer we had before that was an HP LJ4.

Are there any other options that actually work with modern Linux?

Thanks. I mostly work with scores and sorely miss being able to print them!
