I'm in the market for a good scanner and a printer to compliment it (for my wife), and I'm interested in some educated input. The scanner needs to be 100% Linux compatible, because it will be used exclusively in that OS. Slightly older scanners are OK as long as they use an analog-type lens rather than a LCD one, and USB. As for the printer, she needs a multi-cartidge color inkjet with a USB interface, and ultraviolet ink curing (like the HP 5500 series). Linux compatibility is not necessary, but would be a plus. I don't expect this forum to do all the research for me, but any input you have would be great to supplement my own research.
