Hi

Brother is usually PnP. Sometimes you have to download the drivers from the brother site and once they are downloaded you have the choice to instll using ubuntu software center. That is the way I did it with 12.04. It was a breeze.

My experience with Brother has been good. Pretty much plug and play. I am using Debian (Linux Mint Debian Edition) but given that Ubuntu is a derivative, I wouldn't expect any problems.

Say that I want to buy a black and white laser printer at Future Shop that plays nice with Ubuntu 12.04 (i.e. no downloading bash scripts to install drivers etc., just plug and play), any suggestions?

P.S. I don't want to start a firestorm about the relative insanity of buying anything at Future Shop or, of using Ubuntu 12.04 for that matter, or having an aversion to bash scripting for that matter for that matter
