Printer supports direct text printing with the 'us-ascii' charset.


Currently one of the cheapest HP DeskJet printers (around 50$).

For basic printing functionality use the HPIJS driver . For advanced functionality such as printer status and maintenance features, use the HPLIP driver (which includes HPIJS).

600 dpi in colour is not supported by the hardware.

Other drivers as Gimp-Print ("gimp-print"/"stp") or some of the "cdjXXX" work, too.

Consumables/Refills: 1 colour (CMY) cartridge and 1 black (K) cartridge or 1 photo (cmK) cartridge
