lexmark x125 and mandrake 9.1


I have some problems with my printer, lexmark x125 and mandrake 9.1. when I try to install the printer the system tells me that it can't recognise the printer. How can I do to solve this problem? Which utility can I use to configure the printer? Mandrake control center gives me some problems... so I'd like to use another configuration program.

Help me!
thanks

Lexmark has not yet created a Linux driver for the Lexmark X125. I've created a simple one and am looking for people to help test it. You can download it here:

Hi Mark,

Thanks for letting me know about your X125 driver. It works very well with Red Hat 9. I will put together a brief howto for newbies, if you would like. I'll try it on a debian system later.

Thanks for sharing your efforts,

Tim

Hi Tim,

If you create a HOWTO, I'll post it on my sourceforge project.

I'm in the process of upgrading the driver to support color, bi-directional printing and 2400 dpi (currently it's only 600 dpi but it's better than nothing!)

I'm also eventually planning on integrating the driver with gimp-print so that it will be distributed in all major Linux distributions, but that's a few months coming.

Sounds great. I'll see if I can get that howto done this weekend.

Mark and Tim,

I am considering making the move to Linux. One thing that is holding me back is hardware compatibility.
I chose the x125 to be able to batch scan big documents.
So I see there is a printer driver for it, but how about scanning?
Thanks in advance.

Ben
