I have an LCD monitor. This old man is strictly a user. I was hoping 
that someone that was using an HP in Mageia with good results might 
provide a model number. I am completely lost by all the technical 
specifications listed for each printer. My needs are simple. I want to 
be able to use it as a copier and most important, is color printing that 
matches within reason the colors on my monitor. My current printer is 
not mageia compatible. Monitor color calibration will not correct it.
Help appreciated.
Thanks, Gary
