Hi. I have a HP inkjet printer, PSC2100 from 2003, which still works
fine but something in Debian has changed.

It used to print graphics and photographs very well. But a year or so
ago graphics stopped being "nice" and started being grainy and
speckled, to the point where the names of roads can't be read in a
print of a Google Map.

I thought it was just driver confusion at first, but this has been
happening on multiple systems, across more than one reinstall.

Yet when I use Windows, it works perfectly.

It's bad enough and obviously not going to get fixed, that I would
like suggestions for a replacement printer/scanner.

Epsom? Cannon? What brand do people use that works well with xsane and CUPS?

Thank you,


I have an HP Officejet Pro 8600 that I like a lot. HP supports linux. Epson doesn't. If you uses Sqeeze you can download the drivers from HP. If you use Wheezy the drivers are include with Cups. The HP ink is relatively inexpensive and the printer is really fast. It's a 4 in one which is nice.
