I am a new linux user. I just installed zorin. I have a lexmark x75 printer. My printer will not work. Will this model of printer work with linux zorin?

That printer has been reported to partially work according to the openprinting project - http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/database/databaseintro

The page telling about that specific printer is at http://www.openprinting.org/printer/Lexmark/Lexmark-X75 which includes a link to a driver.

Thanks for the reply. I tried the driver suggested but it did not work for me. I will keep trying.

In my experiences Lexmark printers have very bad compatibility with all operating systems except for windows. In most cases I advise people to ditch the paper-weights known as lexmark printers and move to HP or another product neutral vendor.

I do not delight in saying this, but the chances are that you may never be able to get that printer to work on anything but windows.
