Anyone find any drivers that work for Lexmark X75 All in One printer?


Hello everyone, as you all know, Lexmark X75 all in one printer isn't liked by linux, i was wondering if anyone had any drivers they knew that would work for it, even if they are generic. It really kills me to have to boot pu into windows just to print or scan somthing Thanks!

Awesome thanks cwwilson!! i'll try that out! if you find one for the scanner let me know
I only see models of:
x125, x73,x74,x75,x76
I do see a Z31, is that what u ment when u said X31?

I tried the Z31, problem is, when I tell it to print, all it does is print out a blank sheet, hey at least its responding hah. Did u get it to do more then that?>

Actually printing with Lexmark X75

I'm in the same boat. Yes, I was very excited when the printer finally responded. However, it doesn't actually print anything; it only feeds the paper. Works fine on the Windows partition, though. Does anybody have any ideas how to get this to work?
