Mostly what will work on any of the open unix like systems.
The problem is often just how to set it up. Many will need 
ghostscript to translate from the normal postscript format
used for output by most unix applications. The GNU 
ghostscript distribution with the stp device caters for high 
performance (I believe) on a wider range of printers.
is an excellent starting point.
