Let’s talk about printers
I have had mixed success with printers on Ubuntu. My old Canon used to have issues, but then suddenly worked fine in Ubuntu 17.04 and then broke completely in Ubuntu 17.10
I have a client who has just switched to Ubuntu with two Brother printers (one is a printer/scanner). Both are listed as being supported on Linux, but neither work since he upgraded to 17.10 and getting one of them to work under 17.04 was a job and a half.
So why is it so difficult to get things running smoothly? Is there something obvious that I should be doing, or are there specific printers that work better than others?
Also another quick question, is this page up to date? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsPrinters
