Post Dell 810 Printer not working in Linux


I have a Dell 810 printer and have tried installing it in several distributions of Linux. I have also tried installing it in Windows 7 but it doesn't work there either. I have done a little research, and, as far as I could find their are no Dell 810 drivers for Linux. Is there a way to fix this problem? Thanks!

Not that I know. AFAIK this printer is really a repackaged Lexmark which uses a proprietary GDI i.e. host based driver.

I suspected it would be like that, guess I will just have to use windows to print. Thanks!
