The latest version of gutenprint is supposedly able to support this 
printer. Any idea where I find that? If there is one issue with Linux 
it's that by the time printer and scanner hardware is supported it's no 
longer in production. I can't count how many scanners I have bought 
(new) which just didn't work, and by the time they worked the new model 
or new firmware was out and I couldn't buy the one that works.

Anyway, I would like to use this setup because it's quite neat but 
totally unsupported.

Alternatively, if I could use the USB printer and scanner directly from 
Windows under kvm without causing the working system printers to die, I 
would do that. Last time I tried the printer worked but the rest of the 
system printers hung after I did it. :-(
