This is crazy! I'm using Printerland as a reference of current,
available products and can't find any colour laser from HP, Brother,
Samsung or Epson that's listed by CUPS. I've just been playing around
with the CUPS web interface on the server. Also been on the avasys site
looking for Epson ppd files and they all miss the part numbers I can

Your P1102 is there but it's a mono.

Is there no simple way to use a current model printer with Linux?
