Lexmark X125

Posted: 08-04-2003, 01:56 AM
Yeah. So I just installed Linux Mandrake 9.1. Went great! Everything is
working wonderfuly...except for my printer (as you might have guessed, the
Lexmark X125) I've looked around, but does anyone know if a driver even
exists for this model? I noticed Lexmark supports it on a few higher-end
models, but not this one. Or if theres not a driver, a way to get it to
work at all? Thanks

Hi!

I'm afraid it looks dark for you (us). I've got a LExmark X75, and that
one is drop dead impossible to get to work. It's firewire connected, and
there's no vendor drivers what so ever. I've tried adding it as a raw
printer, as well as a post script standard one. But without any form of
success. I've managed to get it to "glitch", but that's all. Boycot
Lexmark and other vendors that doesn't write open source drivers. That's
my advice! I know I will.
