The printer we have at home is an Epson Stylus DX4200 – I dislike it rather a lot, but it works so there’s no need to buy a new one. When I say it works, I mean it prints. It prints fine from every OS I’ve tried it on except one.
Now at this point, I imagine some of you will be thinking that it’s Ubuntu that the printer doesn’t play nice with. Quite the opposite is true, it works perfectly with Ubuntu via my Airport Extreme, it is in fact Windows 7 that doesn’t play nice with the printer (OS X works on it, as does XP & Vista). I’ve even installed the correct printer drivers on Win7, but no joy, it just will not work.
On the plus side, this gives me good reason to suggest a new printer, so does anybody have any recommendations in mind? I’d quite like a colour laser printer, however, the problem lies with other peoples use of the printer, such as scanning documents etc.
