Hewlett-Packard has released drivers for over 30 of their inkjet printers. The drivers themselves are provided under a mixture of licenses, ranging from GPL for GNU-licensed Ghostscript additions, the GNU Lesser GPL (LGPL) for the glue code, and a BSD license with an "HP product only" clause for the HP Inkjet Server software.
The drivers are currently available as binary RPM's as well as a source tarball.
Supported printers for this release include:
"HP has developed solutions for printing with Deskjet inkjet printers in Linux. The drivers and support resources for the HP Linux Inkjet Driver Project are available on this site."
"The HP driver provides basic printing support for more than 30 Deskjet printer models. Basic printing support means very good print quality and will generally work in two print modes plain paper normal, and photo paper best."
"The HP Linux Inkjet Driver Project is a add-on to the GNU Ghostscript application. This driver is based on the Hewlett Packard Appliance Printing Development Kit (APDK) for deskjet printers."
