I've had the best luck with HP but I also run an old Minolta laser printer (black and white) and have had luck with Canon (which seems to have color profile issues).

The HP and Minolta are running off a Xubuntu (32bit) CUPS server.

HP, hands down. Unfortunately, they're flimsy pieces of....

I only have access to a Brother right now and it's a much sturdier actual physical object but you have to get the drivers from the Brother site, you can't get the source only a .deb or a .rpm and even then they suck in sucky ways like you need sudo privileges to scan.

I wish I had the brains and time to reverse engineer those puppies but it is what it is.

yeah, always avoid Brother printers. There's 5 printers at work and the only one that won't work with linux is the Brother.

Yup.

I forgot to upvote you. I haven't seen you around as much lately or maybe I've not been seeing your posts because I've been spending my time on different fora just been exploring a bit of my wild side.

I hope you and yours are doing well.

I still think you are an awesome writer and a contender in the World's Greatest Olympic Champion Competetive World's Greatest Son competition if such a thing weren't too ridiculous for my own puny imagination to conceptualize.

They all are. You said easiest, not safest.

If you want safe instead of easy, I would feel irresponsible recommending anything less than old school Handwriting Without Tears workbooks for fifteen minutes a day for as long as it takes. The modern ones suck donkey droppings so don't bother and cursive is probably safer even if it isn't easier and more so every day the schools don't teach it.

But you said easy and that's just safer than what Reality Winner used and not easy at all, especially the humility part.

:P
