Question Dell 810 AIO printer/scanner driver


I'm new to Linux having just installed Ubuntu 12.04 to a new desktop machine. I have connected a Dell 810 AIO printer scanner to it by USB but when trying to install the printer that model is not listed under the DELL heading. Does anyone know of a source for a driver or the actual maker of this printer. I heard that it was a rebadged Lexmark but the technical help on the Lexmark site says they can't recognise it and so far I have not managed to get anywhere with Dell. I thought, as Dell did (at one time), sell new machines with Linux installed they would have supported their badged printer but the Dell website is not very helpful. Any help to at least get the printer section going would be apreciated and if the scanner can work as well that would be a bonus.

If you look here http://www.openprinting.org/printers/manufacturer/Dell you will see some Dell AIO listed, but as paperweights. Lexmarks did not always have good Linux compatibility. You may be out of luck. I used to have a AIO 922 and just gave up and bought an HP printer.

If you want a printer, I would shop using the listings from the links I used. HP's are usually a good bet.

I have a dell 810, and know from past experience that it will only work in Windows, and in windows XP at that. I would buy a different one if I were you.
