Bus 004 Device 004: ID 03f0:2f11 Hewlett-Packard PSC 1200

plug, emerge hplip, play... hp linux support is SO GOOD... must be because of that "hpux" unix operating system. my experience with my hp deskjet1051 was equally as painless. im having a problem with it, thanks to its robust tools, i know its because im not in the LP group. after restarting xdm, now it wants lpadmin group.... easy. ink levels are showing up now.

Yes I was kind of surprised that hplip worked fairly well despite it appearing to be a huge conglomerate mess.
I guess HP wants us paying for more cartridges... Only issue for one of the printers is requiring libusb0.

HP Officejet G85
HP Deskjet 3650

I haven't tried my Deskjet 880 as I don't have working cartridges in it. I suspect it may need libusb0, I might have to buy cartridges for it to see if libusb-compat actually works...
