Well, HP all-in-ones are dead easy to set up in Kubuntu however, quality seems 
to be very much lacking.  I have gone through three since the first of the 
year.  I loved the 6480 but it lasted only three weeks.  The two 4680's each 
lasted less than two weeks.  None lasted even a quarter way through the 
starter ink so it was not from over use.  I now have a Canon MP 620 but it is 
not working yet.  Seems close to working but the printer completes the jobs 
but doesn't print it.  I don't know why.  I'd recommend avoiding both these 
two brands at least until they repair their shortcomings.
