Any news on this issue?
Today I've been asked if an hp business inkjet 1200 is "compatible with 
Linux" (what that actually means is if it's possible to install drivers 
on the server for point&click printing), this time *before* actually 
buying the printer.
I downloaded the driver here


and I have the same problem, so I advised *not* to buy this printer, but 
I fear most newer drivers have this issue.
