i think its just going to be a waiting game, as i don't think this printer is even supported yet....lexmark plain and simple has terrible support in linux, as i can't even get my z25 to work...on lexmarks site and linuxprinting site they have drivers for my printer plus docs on ways of getting it to work, but still no deals...the lexmark site doesn't even supply a linux driver for your printer that they say works nor does linuxprinting even mention it...
even after googling, there isn't much mention of it, let alone ways to get it i don't think your going to get it working as of yet
