compatiple printers

Asked by Jaddo Chafat Omran on 2012-09-28

Can any one recommend a printer which can work with Windows 7 & Ununtu 12.04 operating systems?

I have a Canon "Pixma iP2200" printer, but it would not print when Ubuntu 12.04 is in operation, in spite of the fact that the operating system recognises this printer.

Personally I use brother network printers. I want a network printer because I don't want to have to ensure one PC is on when I print from another. I use Brother because the first one I bought worked well so I stayed with them.

I'm sure you will get a lot of other answers too, Most HP printers work straight out of the box if using USB.

There is more information here

When you pick one I suggest you ask another question. Something like: "I have ubuntu version (insert here) and am thinking of buy a (insert manufacter) printer model (insert model). Has any body else got one and are there any problems getting it to work"

This should give you some confidence.

Can you help with this problem?
