I've got both an HP Officejet J5780 and Epson CX7800 (both are
all-in-one units) and they are completely functional. I did have to
upgrade CUPS to get the HP working as the version in Ubuntu Feisty
didn't have the driver.

The state of printing and scanning in Linux is much improved over
previous years.
