Does anyone know of companies that do product-lines that are easily compatible with Gnu&Linux?

See as begining - remember - sometimes you will have to (re)install driver manually, sometimes replace the driver from distro (HP P1100 & Mandriva).

For work I use HP and Konica - both work. Tested on Debian 4-7 and Mandriva up to 2012.

I divide the Konica in two groups - full version (my models: C253, 4695MF) works in PCL&PS and version light - chipper but risk to work.

Silimar is problem with HP - see CUPS documentation for support. Generally HP works out of the box (my private HP-8500 multifuction I connected via USB and Debian7 autoinstalled), but some models don't understand PCL and/or PS. The HPijs also doesn't support all models.

If you want to use the special function like autorotation paper-sheet function Landscape=>Portrait (eg Ricoh multifunction devices) - first download PPD file and see is this function exists or not. If you need other languages in print dialog-box than english the translate messages in PPD file is the easier way.

Forget about Brother if you use 64bit distro, the drivers works OK only in 32bit version. Of course you can install on 64bit but it gives more problems that can be imagine in different kind like moved print-content always 5cm up and cut from the bottom.

    + if printer support PCL and/or PS and/or hpijs
    + is PPD on the OpenPrinting website with remark "Perfectly"
    + is printer as vendor+model+connection-kind described in CUPS docs
    total: 90% of proof it will work.

Z poważaniem / Kind regards
