Ubuntu 10.10 / Lexmark S405 - Driver / Wifi ?


Got a new Lexmark S405 printer. Where do I get a driver that will work and how do I get it to work on Wifi? I have it working on the Windows system with Wifi but am at a loss how to get it to work here.

I have a dual hard drive set up (one drive is Ubuntu 10.10 and the other drive is Windows XP). I have one router (Linksys / Cisco T-Mobile @Home) connected. It broadcasts the Wifi signal.

Solved.

Googled it and went to Lexmark website where I found a "Debian" driver. Downloaded it and it had (in addition to the driver install) a control panel that allowed me to set up the Wifi connection. Works fine now.
