Here's my response to your croos-post on the CLUE-TECH list.

I have the Epson CX4200 (Printer-Copier-Scanner), and it works
flawlessly on [K]ubuntu - printer and scanner. It's a little slow, but
I think the faster Epson models are well supported as well and some of
them have fax as well. There is a FOSS utility for checking ink status
and performing alignment, but I just lost a system so I've got to
Google for it again. I keep hearing that Epson color inks are the best
in the industry (this will probably start a flame war!).
