[ubuntu] Printer (Lexmark) not Recognised

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have installed Karmic on this computer and now have the displays working more or less correctly thanks to help received in this forum. I am unable to use my printer however. The printer does not seem to have been recognised at all. It is a Lexmark X5150 and checking the Lexmark site there does not appear to be a driver available for it to run under Linux, even though that option is shown on their site. Is there a generic driver that I could use? Or can you advise some other source? And how can I get it to recognise that the printer even exists? (Hardware)
