Sorry for the redundancy, but I was just wanting to make sure that the Lexmark X4580 (part of the 3500-4500 series) also is not Linux compatible, such as the X3550 in the linked question above?

I am running Ubuntu 10.04

Thanks, Amy

I am afraid there is bad news for you. Only very few linux drivers are available for Lexmark printers. Whether or not a particular model will work is completely hit and miss. If I were you, I would start looking for a different printer. Brother have excellent linux support for their printers, and so do HP.

Yeah, guess it was just wishful thinking. Thanks – AmyS Sep 16 '10 at 2:17
