While I'm not familiar with this model in particular, I've used many 
dozens of donated printers in my various projects, classrooms, and 
workshops. I've never yet run into one that has not worked 
out-of-the-box with Ubuntu.

Rarely the drivers seem very slow compared to Windows or Mac; I'm sure 
this is due to painstaking emulation of some proprietary code.

Once the output was not as nice.

Sometimes ink level reporting does not work.
