I am using HP Deskjet 735, from more then 2 years on Linux without any
issues. HP has got decent support on Linux.
It is a multifunction device.


Thanks Kapil but only three HP MFP's are available here:  M1136, M1005 and M1213nf.  Anyone have experience with these?  Or another device?  Thanks, Gustav.
