I'm after thoughts on the current best colour printer to go for
(or sites I should consult for this information)...

I don't do a lot of colour printing, so I don't care about speed
or heavy duty construction.
It is mainly for CD/DVD labels, and the occasional print of a
digital photograph. Ability to print direct to a DVD/CD would be
convenient, but not essential.

Still quite happy with my old HP 5MP (which has performed flawlessly
for years) for monochrome printing.

Main requirements are:
	Works well with Debian/Linux, ideally with good documentation
	 and a manufacturer that supports Linux directly, and all features
	 accessible from Linux.

You could try an Epson D88. Gutenprint supports OK but Seiko/Epson have a linux driver on their web site I downloaded. I couldn't figure out how to install it under Debian and include with the other drivers but it does exist and smarter people than me could advise you on how to do it on this user list.....

I think Samsung also have Linux drivers.

	Good print quality
	Plain paper and consumables that don't have too short a shelf

Doesn't have to be the cheapest printer on the market, but I am not
looking for a professional machine designed for heavy use either.

Any suggestions?
