Printer driver for Lexmark Z611

I recently purchased a refurbished laptop that uses Linux Mint 17.1 "Rebecca" (Cinnamon 64-bit) and am trying to get it to work with my Lexmark Z611 printer.

The "wizard" did an auto-search for a printer driver, and seemed to find one, but that didn't work. I tried doing a manual search and couldn't find anything in the wizard that matched up with my printer.

I had Linux Ubuntu on my old laptop, and I remember that required going through some hoops to get the printer to work. I was able to figure that out on my own online last time, but don't seem to be having any luck finding a driver for Linux Mint. Any leads?
