    Lexmark Pro 200 Series Printer?

    My family just bought a new wireless printer - a Lexmark Prospect Pro 205 to be exact. It's already been configured fine with all the Windows computer in the house by using the installation CD. I was just wondering if this printer was compatible with Ubuntu, I already looked in the list of supported printers and it wasn't listed. Furthermore I tried adding it with the Printer tool in Ubuntu and I couldn't find it (maybe because I don't know what options to chose ). Anyways, the printer is Wireless and uses my network - it isn't connected to any computer. It has its own built in WiFi and even it's own IP.

    Can someone help me set it up or tell me if this printer is even supported? I would really like to be able to print - it would make things very difficult if I couldn't.
    Thanks.

    It would help us help you to provide the actual model. "Lexmark Pro 250" doesn't seem to exist.

    Oops, it's 205, not 250. *Lexmark Prospect Pro 205.

    Thanks for pointing that out .

    Lexmark is generally a no-no for Linux. But they actually have some drivers posted for that model, they appear to be x86 only though.

    Just click the downloads button and you'll see Linux at the bottom. Good luck.

    Re: Lexmark Pro 200 Series Printer?

    i would like to know if the original poster of the question was using 32 or 64 bit ubuntu, as it would help me decide whether or not to buy this printer. i see there is 32 bit drivers on the lexmark support site.
    and i can see you got them working.
    but whats o.s. version are you using?
