Hp Deskjet 820Cse will it work under Linux
Posted on 1997-09-01
I just bought an HP DeskJet 820Cse Professional Series Inkjet printer for windows. On the box it states 'Exclusively for win 3.1, 95'
My question is: Will this printer work with Slackware Linux, The kernel is 2.0.27 and it is running on a 486-66 16m system. I posted this question to comp.os.linux, comp.os.linux.misc, comp.os.linux.setup, I recieved many responses saying that this printer should work and then some say that this is a windows only printer and that I should return it and get another one that will work under Linux. I would like to keep this model, I got it for a nice price and it's also a color printer. It works fine under window but I will soon be leaving the dos world for linux permanently.
I've tried contacting HP web site for info and could not find an answer. So will this printer WORK under linux???
