I use Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop, with MATE desktop environment.
The key, for the printer drivers/PPDs, is finding the ones that have the
most options. When my Epson printer still worked properly, I had 3
printer-driver version of that printer setup. Each had a different
combination of print options, with none having all the options I wanted
to use. I have 2 installed for the HP2300dn dulpex laser printer. I
now have one working for the HP Officejet 7000 wide format printer
[finally]. I also use CUPS-PDF as my default "printer".
For FAX, I prefer to use the "stand-alone" FAX options instead of
through the computer to printer option. The only reason I keep my Epson
Artisan 810 around, after I got the "ink pad end of life warning" is for
its FAX machine functions. I do about 1 FAX per month, as an average.
Since my only computer that has a FAX/modem phone cable plug-in is a
half dead HP laptop with XP on it, I really need to have the outgoing
standalone FAX option kept ready to use. All I need to do it plug the
phone line in and turn it on.

I wonder if you can install the drivers without having the printers
installed so you can test the drivers for their options within LO.
The same "hpcups" driver would not give me tray options when printing
an email using Thunderbird, as it did with LO. SO, it is important
to test the drivers with the packages you will be needing.
For TEST exists functions: (be carrefull, made copy of old PPD file)
I don't know what is your distro and which version of CUPS do you
use. Based on my Debian - from about CUPS version 1.2 is possible for
test install ANY printer driver. Download your-desired-model PPD from
OpenPrinting and replace the file by hand in folder
/etc/cups/ppd/old-file.ppd as overwriting. Restart CUPS+LO (or reboot
your computer) and you can test printer functions. Of course the real
printout on the paper can be not possible.
As for the big, copy/printer/collate/stapling machine, They have it
on the office downstairs. IT is also a FAX machine. These are the
type of all-in-one machines that many offices choose and we really
need to make sure that LO, with the OS's drivers, can access all of
the needed functions included withing that office printing device.
For FAX function from printer connected via USB in the past I used
Kfax from KDE3. Has anyone experience with any new/modern
multi-function device-printer connected via IP address? I have got
2pcs devices but none can be connected to telephone line.
