I am having numerous problems with Linux OS and Ubuntu recognizing printers. I am in the process of purchasing a new printer and would appreciate any guidance on compatibility. What printer will be recognized by Ubuntu?

In its current form this is not a question. Please edit into a single understandable question like "I have [this] printer, will it work with Ubuntu?" or "How can I get [this] printer to work with Ubuntu?" then we will be able to help you. I am currently flagging this for closure. If you edit it into a good question it will not be closed. – Seth Jan 18 '13 at 15:42

I was in a hurry and thought I asked the question clearly. Now that I have edited my question with proper English, perhaps I will get an answer. – Cleo Hill Jan 18 '13 at 16:58
