M'ha arribat aquesta petició que fa un tal Daniel Gnoutcheff sobre quina
impressora laser multifunció podria comprar, que pugui funcionar amb un
ordinador completament de programari lliure.

Comenta la trampa de Hewlett Packard (HP) amb els seus controladors
aparentment lliures que durant la instal·lació introdueixen «firmware»
privatiu.

Hello,

I'm looking for printer/scanner combos to put in some home offices.
Some will be printing a lot, so I'd prefer laser over inkjet.  Many of
the offices are cramped, so I'd prefer a compact multi-function unit
over a separate printer and scanner.

So far, I've been unable to find a device where both printing *and*
scanning works with free drivers.  For example, the HP M227fdn is listed
(https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing/supported_devices/index)
as "fully supported" by HPLIP with no (proprietary) plugin involved, but
apparently that's only for the printer part.  Having purchased it, I've
learned the hard way that the scanner driver doesn't work without a
proprietary plugin.  I'm not the first to make that mistake it seems
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1727056).

Has anyone managed to find a multi-function laser printer/scanner where
both printing and scanning are supported by free drivers?

Thanks,
Daniel G.
