It depends on the printer model. If your mac has a standard full system install then there is a pretty good chance that the software is already installed. Generally the only software that isn't already there is that for all-in-ones (scanner/copier/printer models).
Connect your printer up, switch it on then attempt to print something. Quite often the computer will recognise the printer and start working. Sometimes it says no printer selected. If that happens click on the button that will have appeared saying 'add printer'. After a moment or two you will see your printer listed. select it by clicking on it and wait a moment or two. Hopefully you will then see a panel that says Lexmark XYZ connected to Joe Bloggs' computer by USB, print using lexmark xyz driver. - or something like that.
Click the add button and the job is done.
If the bottom part about the driver does not fill in by itself (you may have to wait while it searches through all the available drivers) then that would suggest that the driver for your particular printer is not installed.
In that caase, connect to the Lexmark website at http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=home&locale=en&userlocale=EN_US%20&segment=DOWNLOAD
and locate the specific driver. download it and install then then try to print again.

Your printer will not print without the correct drivers installed in your computer. To locate and download your drivers, you can visit the Lexmark website.

Just enter the information requested and the website will direct you to the correct drivers.

Also, you'll need to know your printer's model number to obtain the drivers you need.

Does the Lexmart 1100 Printer need operating software?


You likely mean LEXMARK. The printer will function without software other than what is in internal to it (firmware). If you want to print from your computer, you will need the print driver installed.

Printer is not installed


You shall immediately disconnect your printer from your laptop. Uninstall your software once more. Install your software without connecting printer to your laptop. If software asks to connect then only connect the software or else just restart your laptop. Now connect your printer. It will automatically install your software. You are ready for printing.

Cannot print from laptop to printer using wireless print server


This is probably the Software Firewall on your laptop

you should probably tell your firewall software that you have an internal network (Laptop-desktop-printer) you should add the IP range of the wireless network as a trusted network.

The only way to setup the printer without the proper drivers would be to use windows add new printer. However windows does not have lexmark x1270 listed. You can dlownload the software from lexmark & install the software / drivers without using the cd.
http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:537:0:0
You need to choose your version of windows to continue.
