HAPPY Internet Sucess HAPPY now printer


HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!!!
I just connected my browser to my internet ISP, and everything is working great, It all came about with the great help, that those of you that responded to my delema with sugestions, that helped me to put it all together. I deeply respect and appreciate all the help that all of you provided. I could not have done this without you.
Now, lets continue to phase two (2) of this project.
I need to get my Lexmark 5150 inkjet printer installed. Every place that I have looked does not have the option to install this model printer. Do I have to download from Linux a driver for this make and model? HELP...............

Is it the x5150 all in one printer?

If so, you should be able to use the Lexmark Z55 driver to operate the printer. Don't expect scanning to work, though (I had to get rid of my lexmark because of lack of linux support..)

Well if the other printer companies were to lower their prices...
