Ubuntu 10.04 works fine after you manually select Generic PCL 6 driver,
This review is from: HP CE749A LaserJet Pro P1606dn Mono Laser Printer (Personal Computers)
Connected this to the network as I didn't have a USB cable and it doesn't come with one (it doesn't come with a network cable either, but I had one spare). Prefer printers connected to the network anyway as its easy to share them between machines.
Setup a new network printer under Ubuntu (10.04), it didn't find the printer driver and the HP 1606DN wasn't on the list and there where no PPD drivers on the CD supplied. First attempt at selecting a similar model failed with a load of characters on the first line of printout, so selected "Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.5 Simplified" and got a Ubuntu test page printout working fine, went into printer options and enabled long edge 2-sided printing and was able to printout a 2 page document from OpenOffice which used both sides of the printout.
Happy so far, but have only been using this for a few hours so can't comment on long term printer usage.
