Hooking up a Lexmark printer


Hello,
I am new to Linux and I am liking it a lot! I am trying to figure out if I can use my Lexmark printer. Would anyone happen to have any helpful information? Thanks in advance.

Mike

You can check for level of support here:

Note that Lexmark printers don't have great support on Linux, but it may have improved.
