    Quick Google search found the following:

    Absolutely nothing..........

    Thinking on this, a Linux driver for an all-in-one printer would be murder to develop. You have CUPS that supports printing, and SANE that supports scanning, and you'd have to create one driver that interacts with both programs.

    CUPS may have an actual print driver that works, but I don't know if you're going to get the scanner portion to work or not.

    Good luck on finding if any workable drivers for any Lexmark printer. And before you buy your next printer for Linux be sure to do a little research on it.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.
