There are no available drivers for your printer and it is not possible to use XP drivers in Linux. This is a classic situation many users face with Lexmark "Windows-printers", AKA Paperweight. Lexmark is on my list of "never buying it again", together with few others
I am afraid you will need a new printer or keep XP around for printing.
