I am fairly inexperienced user currently running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64-bit. I am trying to get a Lexmark x2630 Printer/Scanner combo to work.
I downloaded the Linux driver from the Lexmark website, which is only for 32-bit. I browsed a whole bunch of forums online, and was able to find instructions to force 32-bit architecture and successfully run the installation program through terminal.
Now the printer works just fine. I am able to print without any issues at all. It's the scanner I am unable to get Ubuntu to detect. Neither Xsane nor SimpleScan detect it. I tried a few solutions offered on some forums, such as downloading the cc548.fw file etc. Got nothing so far.
Looking at the forums and responses to solutions, it also doesn't seem like the issue has been solved for 64-bit users.
I would appreciate any help you can offer.
