Lexmark Z65

Can someone confirm for me that the Lexmark Z65 is a non-compatible printer for Linux. Or does someone know some workaround such that I don't have to go buy a new printer for my Slackware 9..... Tks, Emmett

I spent quite a bit time trying to make Lexmark Z65 working under Linux. All forum messages I have read qualify this printer as a "purely Windows one", which is actually not the case. A Linux driver for this printer is available at
I installed it under Suse 9.0 and my Z65 is now fully functional.
