Portable printer for SolydX

Postby escolar » 23 Dec 2016 10:47

I want to buy a portable printer for my laptop.
I have found this models in Amazon:

Epson WF-100W --> It seems not supported in Linux
Canon Pixma iP110 --> I have found https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/18 where they explain how to install it in Ubuntu.

Do you think Canon Pixma is supported in SolydX? Any other suggestion?

you can use cups to check it. open your browser and go to cups setting. IIRC it's "localhost:631". open administration, add printer. you'll see the list of supported printers there. personally I won't use cnijfilter. that one is buggy. as a general rule, regarding linux support, remember that HP is best, epson is moderate, canon is worst.

Thanks for your answer

Epson WF-100 is in the list of supported printers, but I don't know if the driver is the same of WF-100W

Brother promises Linux support for their mobile printers. They aim at business customers and are a bit more expensive. My experiences with Brother and Linux are good but I have used only network printers.

+1

brother is another good vendor. though, they rarely have home/small office product so they tends to bit more pricey.
