Finding Linux Compatible Printers

Originally published at: Finding Linux Compatible Printers

Here’s all the info and links needed to find printers or all-in-one printers that currently support Linux. If you don’t want to spend hours comparing printers, have a look at my recommended Linux compatible printers. This is the promised update as per the comments section below, sorry about the delay! Fixed broken manufacture product links and replaced…

I have been wanting to get a printer. I don’t use it often but when I need it, it sucks having to ask someone if I can print something. So the HP DeskJet 2755 is the cheapest option that runs on Linux? Would you happen to know how much the ink costs?

I need to update that article. Printing has improved for Linux, as well as the hardware options. I’ve added it to my to-do list.

Great work on the article.

For basic printing, I used the cups method as well.

I set up my raspberry pi as a printer server in the early 2015 years. Didn’t have to many issues with the printer we had.


Unfortunately, the Cannon Pixma MG 3620 has lots of issues. Constant errors.

Any advice is appreciated, btw. It’s too late for me to return the printer, so I’m leaning toward donating it and trying another one if I can’t make it work.


Hi @noconfirmationemail

Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback. Welcome to our community.

I’ve updated the post and removed the Canon 3620.

I’ve had success with Epson WF-3720 & XP-4100 as well as Brother HL-L2380DW on my networks with Linux Mint, Arch Linux, and Garuda Linux as well as Apple. Surprised no Epson’s in your list!
