Dell Color Printer


Dell Freebie, Color Printer 725 also known as Lexmark z735.

I was just wondering if anyone installed this printer, and what driver did they use

Sorry to say, but Linuxprinting.org lists your model as "paperweight".

In general, Lexmark and Canon inkjets have very poor support. You're much better off with a good Epson.

I see that the thread is very old but i post anyway.

I have the same printer an running linux and almost gave up on this one the printer has been laying on the shelf for a year when i finally came across this driver.

It accepts the driver fine in linux, but there is some isue with cups.
