Our Brother MFC 3100c died a little while ago. It kept coming up with "Machine Error 41"
Anyway, that AIO was the only reason I still had a solo winblows machine on my home network. After looking on LinuxPrinting.org I found that an Epson that I liked was supported by gimp-print. Actually the one I was looking at wasn't listed, but since it was just a recently released "upgrade" I figured it should work.
A few people had posted problems they had had getting the Stylus CX6400 (I have the CX6600) working with a earlier kernel than 2.4.21. However I'm running Fedora Core1 with kernel 2.4.19, and everything just worked.
Now the issue I'm about to try, but want to find out everything I can on first is, how to have the printer hooked up to the ex-X-Box downstairs in the basement and be able to print to it from the other computers through out the house.
Most everything I came across so far only addresses linux to winblows or winblows to linux printing using Samba. I refuse to have windows on anything except the dual-boot laptops we use for school (damn institutions still strictly use that crap).
I'm going to be running Gentoox Pro v1.4, after I wipe out Gentoox Home that I screwed up testing some things out on. Which is the reason Dave'sVersion has been down for quite a while.
Suggestions/recommendations that don't involve anything M$ related will be greatly appreciated.
