Desperately trying to get this printer and scanner to work under ubuntu.
Has anybody had any experience using one of these printers, if so any advice on getting the damn thing working?

Thanks

Were you ever able to get it working?

Since Dell ships computers with ubuntu now, I'd think they would make a driver or whatever it's called for this printer to work with Linux. I have a v305 as well .

This seems to be the same as the Lexmark X4650. There are now .deb packages with drivers for it. Have you tried that ?

This indicates a bit more fiddling to make it work, but seems promising:
