My Canon computer printer started giving trouble, printing jagged lines. Some time ago I bought an HP fr2180 printer cheap on eBay as a spare. After all the aggro with the Canon that I had getting it to run properly with Linux Ubuntu, I was dreading the same thing with the HP drivers. Windows XP and Windows 7 downloaded the printer drivers onto the two separate caddies easily, which is what I expected. Then I had to download onto the two Ubuntu versions on two other caddies. Boy, was I surprised. I was amazed how easy it was to download the HP printer drivers onto the Linux systems. My heart was elated as the anticipated stress melted away. From now on I will always use HP.
