Driver for Lexmark X6170 multi-function printer

Anyone know of a Linux driver for the Lexmark X6170? I'd be quite happy just to find a driver for the printer.

As far as I can tell, they don't make one for Linux.

Lexmarks support for Linux is not too good.

The bad news is that Lexmark is one of the worst when it comes to support for Linux. They do offer a developer kit so that you can write your own driver if you're up to that:
