Hmm, I've had pretty good luck with them.  This one hasn't screwed up
yet, so I'll stick with it for a while and see what happens.  They've
done better for me than the nouveau drivers that come with X/Ubuntu.

Thanks for that one, though.

I tried the latter - generic printer with pcl5e driver - still no go.

What the heck - I can't do much worse than it not printing at all.
Wish me luck.
