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.
	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?
I love my Dell 3100cn.  It's a big network *laser* printer that cost
about $350.

I second the Dell 3100cn. Not completely photograph quality, but pretty darn good. Plus it's laser so the ink doesn't dry out out as it does here in Colorado...
