you will need a linux driver to use. should be easily available if not bundled within your linux build. what have some operating limits for the printer depending on the drivers obtained. hope this helps
I regret to inform you that the Lexmark X7170 does not work on Linux Mint. Unfortunately, there is no driver available driver for this previous generation printer model for your Linux system. If you want, you may contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to search for other Lexmark printers that can work on your Linux system and that meets your printing needs.
How was your day, hope fine. Sharp Ar5316 driver are for windows. This means that the printer drivers are only compatible with windows and not with linux. My advice to you is that please uninstall Linux system from your desktop and servers and install windowsxp instead and your copier will work. Remember to save important files while doing this as they may be lost in the process. Let me know your progress.
Did you try just plugging it in? If you run Ubuntu Karmic, or another recent flavor of linux, it may just work right away. In fact, this has been the case with every printer that I've tried with Ubuntu Karmic. No driver needed! To check, plug in your printer, and wait for a while while Linux recognises your new hardware. If it works, it will say your printer is ready to use.
If this doesn't work, check out this page to see if a driver is available for your printer:
I did a web search and ended on a forum where everyone was complaining that they could not get drivers.
But one person (user name Arthur) said that the problem is solved by printing from a virtual machine that runs on top of Linux (for instance Virtual Box). Arthur claims that the printer worked through USB as well as WIFI. Sounds Neat.
First: Shouldn't you have addressed you comments to Lexmark?
This is a site where questions are answered by people from all over the world - I doubt that there is anyone answering questions here who works for Lexmark.
Note: I totally agree with you on the fact that manufacturers should produce Linux drivers - but here's the rub - there are so many versions of Linux that a manufacturer would need to write so many versions of a driver that it would be uneconomical. It would be much easier if there were fewer versions of Linux (at least only a few core versions - say Debian and RedHat only) rather than every version of Linux requiring it's own software and drivers etc.
And yes it would be good for Manufacturers to release the code to anyone who asked for it - but where is the Commercial Security in that?
I like Linux - but I think it is about 10 years away from being a mature and user friendly Operating system. The primary need for Linux programmers is to start using Standards when developing their OS. Think of this problem as an analogy - It wouldn't matter what size or design wheel was created if it used the same axle bearings and hub as everyone else. It could still be put on the cart and used.
I think the best bet to find a Windows Vista driver is to go to http://www.lexmark.com.
At the top is a drop-down that says "Drivers & Downloads". Under that select "Driver Finder".
On this page it gives you a few options, but there is a box that says "Search by Model" above it. Type X7350 in this box and it will find what you need. You'll have to select Vista after this, but it should be easy from there on out I think. The X7300 and X7350 are the same series, and so the same driver will work.
Hope this helps!
There is no linux driver for this printer for those asking about a linux driver.
