While this product will not be featured in a Phoronix review, we simply wanted to pass along a few additional details about Hewlett-Packard's Deskjet 5940xi printer under Linux. Some of the features for the HP Deskjet 5940xi include borderless 8.4 x 11-inch printing, optional six-ink printing, ink-backup mode, picture bridge support, and auto-off power savings. When it came time to install the 5940xi printer, we had attached it to a Fedora Core 5 system with the 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 kernel and GNOME v2.14. Turning the system on, Linux had detected an attached printer and we simply selected the appropriate printer and driver from the list. After that, the system was set to go with all of its printing needs. Printing everything from photographs to documents, the print quality was satisfactory and in all of the testing we had ran across no problems when it came to the Linux setup. If any Linux users happen to come across any Hewlett-Packard Deskjet 5940xi issues, feel free to contact us.
