  Yeah, but HP Scanners suck for linux support.... If you want a printer, get
  one that understands postscript. Postscript is a standard and therefore no
  drivers are needed. In fact the windows drivers for postscript printers are
  simple renamed versions of the standard postscript windows driver. So quite
  often in linux choosing any postscript printer driver will do the job too.
