    My network printer won't work


    My network uses a Lexmark X5150 printer. I use Ubuntu, which hasn't got a dirver. And since it isn't directly connected to my computer I can't get a proprietry driver. I can't find any online and, since I'm a n00b, can't make my own one. I can send files to my mum via email to print, but that's much more time-consuming and I'd rather print directly.

    Does anybody know where I can find the driver?

    Not sure, but I'd look at lexmarks website.

    Lexmark is horrible about their drivers for anything that isn't windows. You may want to look at what other people did with that printer. Here is a good example: I have a Lexmark X63 in my basement hooked up to another computer. There is no X63 driver for linux. But, I can use the Z53 driver and it works just fine.
