Need printer driver


I have a Linux machine (Red Hat 6.4) and a Lexmark X7170 all in one printer that used to operate under Windows XP with no problem. I am looking for a printer driver that is compatible. I have called Linux support and they claim there is not one available for my printer model but several months ago they sent me one but I have misplaced it.
Any ideas or am I out of luck? Thanks much.

You can look at Lexmark's support page on this printer:

http://support.lexmark.com/index?loc...rompage=null#2

They offer some Linux stuff, but it looks to be very old.

I could not find a listing for this particular model on the Open Printing Database.

My Dell 1700n can use LaserJet 4 drivers, but I did a quick search for alternate drivers for your Lexmark and came up dry. It sounds like your best option would be to look at Lexmark's drivers as frankbell suggested. Good luck and please follow up if you get it working.
