This may be useless since you may have already tried:
Is the Lexmark a printer all in one?
If so download the appropriate driver ( by searching say, via google )
and then on the menu somewhere you find: Administration > printing.
click on it, go on new printer, and if it's a local printer then it should have it on the list, select it, continue, and when it displays the drivers, MAKE SURE that the right company and all is selected ( since normally it doesn't do that ), if it's not on the list get the driver you downloaded earlier by going on the "new driver" or "load driver" ( whatever ) button and find it.
Unless it's tar.gz format or another archive format, just select it and the program does the rest.
Note also that when using linux, it is best to have the device attached to your computer when booting, because that way it loads it.
Hope this makes sense and is of help!
