HP Printer Manager

Does anyone know whether the HP Printer Manager will operate properly under CrossOver Linux? Right now my HP all-in-one prints fine, but the options provided by the default driver under CrosOver Linux are vew. I'd like to be able to choose Rough Draft or High Quality printing mode, for example, or change the print resolution of images, or many other features that are available in Windows under the HP Printer Manager and in Linux under hplip-gui. Thoughts?

Almost certainly not. Crossover uses the Linux print drivers to access your printers from windows apps. Crossover/wine cannot install windows print drivers, and since your HP Printer Manager for windows app is, as I understand it, a refined back-end control system for windows print drivers, it's functionality will be severely curtailed in Crossover (if it works, at all). For more precise printer controls you'll want to seek out linux-native solutions.
