brothers all in one printer sells for a little over $300.00 dollars. Savings in ink cartridges will pay the difference in price in just over a year.

"Brothers in thee"? Is that a new sect or something? Sounds a little kinky... 😉

Did a lot of that in old forum also didn't I? Damn fat fingering. No wonder my supervisor had questioned some of my text messages when I had worked there.

Well, got the printer. HP 5255. Not bad. Got hooked up with the computer and with the laptop. Nice color to it. Was a bitch setting up at first. I was in Stable on the pc when doing it. But when trying to print would only do a 1/4 if that and quit. Same with laptop. Kept trying with same results. So went to testing to try and install there. Damn. Was already setup. So printed and bitch did a complete print job. Went into Synaptic and copied down what it showed installed and went back to Stable and installed the differences. Worked great. Did same with laptop and also worked great. Got to playing around with the duplex setup. Stable and laptop will duplex great. Testing not for some reason. It don't have the printer settings working for the longest time even on old printer so have to go into the HPlip icon and work from there. I do the settings and make sure they match with the job but when I tell it to print in the duplex mode I still get two single sheets instead of front and back like it's supposed to do. But can do an Stable and on the laptop so I know to go to one of those if I want to duplex. Just can't figure out as to why it's doing that. Maybe if could get the printer settings icon to work instead of the pointer spinning for a couple of seconds and disappearing and not doing anything I could get it to do so. Don't know. But at moment don't look like will be duplex print in Testing. Other than that it's doing a great job. Like HP.

Use your menu to figure out the command that spins and does nothing then run it in a terminal. The output may indicate what's not working.
