I am trying to find a printer that will run with my Ubuntu 11.04 installation and, having just been to my local PCWorld store. (Wonder if this Epson printer will run with Ubuntu)

I already have a Lexmark 1480 printer but there is no Ubuntu compatible for this printer so I need another one.

You should not need to install any drivers - just connect the HP printer over USB and let Ubuntu do its thing.
