hi, thanks for not buy hardware incompatible with software libre 100%

you can use openprinting look at,
search the printer if you see something about download a driver
(.deb,.rpm) be sure it's not compatible with software libre 100%,
look at this printer are working, i worked
with HP LaserJet 1020.

look at and check the field
'compatibility with free software:' = 'A-Full'. 

note: if you have something that's work or not work with software libre
100%, example laptop or PC, printer,scanner,etc.. please contribute on
community database h-node -

and my best option, go to shop center with your laptop with
software libre 100% connect the printer and see you can install
it and print.

se libre
