Locating printer drivers for Ubuntu on PowerMac
I've taken an old PowerMac G3 that was being dumped and installed Ubuntu Linux 6.06.1 LTS on it. The installation went as a charm; all HW was detected automatically – it even autodetected an old Microsoft wireless mouse I had lying around.
Now I want to install my ethernet-connected Lexmark E120n printer, but that proved difficult. I tried locating drivers on the Lexmark homepage and found Debian drivers. Since Ubuntu is built on Debian I figured that it would work – however, only i386 drivers are supplied.
What do I do? Is there some collection of Linux drivers out there that I don't know about? I've considered attaching the printer directly to the Mac using USB to see if Ubuntu will automagically locate and download the drivers, but I would like to solve this problem "manually" if possible.
