    Where can I find a printer driver for a Dell V305?

    Hi

    I'm setting up a printer on Lucid 10.4. I can't find a printer driver.

    How do I install a Dell V305?

    According to openprinting.org your printer is not supported.

    Dell doesn't actually make printers, they buy printers from Lexmark and rebrand them as Dells. Lexmark would almost be considered the anti-linux of all computer hardware providers.
    Debian Testing(64bit) + XFCE4 AM2 5200+ ATI Radeon HD4350, 4gig RAM,320Gig and 750gig HDs

    what's the difference between an answer and a solution? An answer is what they want to hear, a solution is what they don't want to hear

    Take a look at Brother printers. They seem to have Linux drivers for every printer they have made in the last few years.

    I would recommend HP, Brother and Samsung. They seem to have decent support. Make sure you check before you buy one that it will work. I personally only use HP printers and scanners now.

    Have you tried the equivalent Lexmark printer driver? This printer looks to be just an x4650 (all Dell printers are re-badged Lexmarks)... so the Linux driver for the x4650 might work (you can download it from Lexmark's site).

    Yes I think this might work. Download the Lexmark driver for x4650 which looks like re-branded Dell v305.

    The link to download the driver is here:

    I just tired this was not able to get it to work. The installer does not recognize the printer when it tries to make a print queue so it gives an error message and closes. If anyone can get this method to work let me know.
