darthaxul : cups .. http://localhost:631/ will already
be present on most systems.

But the Lexmark/Dell all-in-one will not work on linux

.... none of the Dell/Lexmark Multifunction/All-In-One printers
will work under Linux due to them being Host-based printers
(offloading processing to the OS, much like Winmodems), which
make them cheaper by not requiring a powerful processor in the
printer. Along with their use of proprietary print data streams,
that makes them difficult to support without official drivers,
which are Windows-only.
IBM has a technical description of the problem here:

Sorry for that !
