Question Need a printer driver

We have a printer that was connected to a dumb terminal for printing reciepts. Since we are tried to fade out the terminal and use linux. I have been searching for a Printer Driver for a Lexmark 2390 plus" and can't find one anywhere on web. Does anyone know where I can download one. Or is there another alternative to the problem. with out replacing the printer.

If you want to try using the KDE printing utility (inside the KDE Control Center), it has an option to use a 'raw' print driver. I'm not sure what this means exactly, but I've used it with a number of different printers with great success.

I'm pretty sure this is the one. If you just look around the lexmark website, you can easily find that it is *nix compatible and browse your way to the drivers

I tried loading the AIX driver but it didn't work. It comes up with the error

Cannot create directory. directory does not exist.

I think the AIX driver only works with AIX OS.

I'll keep trying.... Please, need urgent assistance...
