Do you still have the link? Any issues? I am most especially interested in network connection abilities. I never direct connect printers. Printer servers are there for a reason either internal or external.
I've got one of these and I quick and dirty set it up as a generic PCL based printer and it printed out a test page great in full color, TCP printer. I did this test under OpenSuse 10.3 just last week. I've not had a chance to do it under Mint KDE CE, yet. To be honest I was tickled that it printed out in color as well as it did with just one of the generic PCL 5 drivers.
To others regarding printer servers, that's all I ever use. I've used them even on junky winslease printers like a Lexmark LX12 and other MFP devices.
I've got an ancient PS105 Netgear server that my ancient OptraE+ is on, no issues virOS or Mint.
I've just got a nice new Sharp MX4501N to play with and unfortunately the native drivers in CUPS are Postscript based and not PCL
Any one installed Easy PrintPro on Mint KDE CE to use the CUPS PS drivers?
