i am trying to get a lexmark x83 printer scanner copyier to work. the ubuntu os sees the device, but will not recognize it for printing or scaning. currently using ubuntu 8.04.1. tia

after a quick search on google, it looks like you may be out of luck. there is no driver for it. lexmark is notoriously bad with linux. that's why i went out and bought an HP.

Update:Apparently the z42 driver makes the printing part of this multifunction work. see this (http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdev.php?id=1423).

thanks for the info. my brother would like to go to ubuntu full time, but cant afford a new multi function printer.
