For 3 years I had an HP OfficeJet G55 running on Ubuntu - great! loved it, all was simple and just worked ... then it broke. I ordered a new printer a Brother HL-2250DN.
I've got the drivers from Brother, so USB is okay. Networked... for the rest of my laptops and computers... no it is using gutenprint - nice project but printing at a resolution of 100 is just diabolical. How I wish I could just go back to my OfficeJet G55.
I know this is due to hardware manufacturers, but how do I just use my printer?
