So I did printer-profile on my Fedora 9 system using ColorMunki, with

So you didn't try the "high density" mode ? (printtarg -h ..." ?

Apart from being more demanding in lining the instrument up,
the main disadvantage I noticed is that the instrument pads
can slightly mark the next row.

I remembered to not hit the trigger momentarily, because after that I
get "comms failure", lsusb hangs, and I need to reboot the system.

Have you tried the latest development snapshot ? It should have fixed this.

Other than hitting the trigger momentarily, it works good!

Thanks for the feedback.

Oh yeah, when doing ColorMunki scans, I taped down the printouts using
"3M Painters Tape".

Apart from it being kind of clunky to use in scan mode (the rubber stoppers
on it that are designed to help "one spot at a time" mode being a hindrance
in swipe mode), the main thing I notice is that you have to be careful to
keep the cord out of the way. It's too easy to catch it on something.
Oh, that and clicking the button accidentally (it's much too big - it
should be smaller and more recessed, so that the instrument can be grasped
without as much danger of clicking it unintentionally).
