Works well in Linux – USB 2.0 to CN36 Parallel Printer Adapter Cable (100CM) Reviews

Worked right out of the box without any fiddling with drivers with Fedora Linux. The short 85 cm long cable good when you are using a printer occasionally with a laptop and it does not take too much storage space, as a longer roll of cable would.
Cable is only 85 cm long, so it is shorter than 1 m specification and quite short for any fixed installation. Usually the printer is not so close to the computer. But an extension cable will fix that. The 3 m USB extension cable 34023 works well with this adapter.
Nice that there is a product with this price so that I can use an older printer with centronics connectors and new laptops and desktops that do not have the parallel port any more.
Get this if you need USB to centronics printer connection.
