Question about Lexmark X75 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The case on the PowerPC broke, and I bought a new MacBook Pro. It's nice. I connected the new and the old by a firewire cable and was automatically able to make a "brain transplant". So, I was back on the air in less than an hour without loss of filles or software. However, printing gave trouble and a message said to up-date the driver. Well, after multiple installs and after multiple e-mails with LexMark support -- and after a one-hour call from India talking with support staff (!) -- the answer seems to be that Apple no longer supports this model. Grrrrrrr. The printer set-up utility lists many LexMark models but not X74-75. The guy from India finally said, "Please contact Apple." (He also said the model is "very old".) I fear that the problem has no solution with the new OS and I will have to buy a new printer. Has anyone else found a cure? This has wasted far too much time.
The Lexmark site in the US seems to have removed the X74/75 driver for OS X. However, you can find it on the Lexmark French site. The driver is CJMX75L1.hqx v. 22.214.171.124.
All of the functions work on my Lexmark X74 using that driver with OS 10.5 (Leopard) on my iMac G5. Note: some users have reported problems expanding the driver file unless it is downloaded using Safari.

I had a similar problem with my X75 and Tiger (10.4.10), except that I could print and use the All in One Center, the part where you can copy and scan, I could also print, but the cartridges where not aligned so I tried running the Utility center and discovered that it would not respond in Tiger. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, everything, to no avail.
Yesterday, I upgraded to Leopard, thinking that it could only get better, in fact, it got a whole lot better, suddenly my Utility center worked like a charm. I could not believe it, but I aligned cartridges right away and now I can print away.

Try downloading and installing the driver from the Lexmark website: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?category=Drivers&ccs=229:1:0:204:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Mac%20OS%20X They claim support for OS X 10.4.X...
