Printer Compatibility

Hi guys!

I just bought a new printer - Lexmark Z515, but I cant get it to print under FC2 kde. When I tried to configure the printer there was no direct match although there are quite a few Lexmark models.
Can anyone tell me what driver I need to use and if this printer can even work in linux??

I can't really help you here because the most helpful linux and printers site doesn't (yet) list a Z515, however, I suggest that you have a look around the site after reading your printers user manual to see if it has any 'substitute' printing protocols.

so try
