From the recommended printers page on linuxprinting.org:
"There are few good free software drivers for Canon and Lexmark inkjets.
Do not buy one and expect success."
"Multifunction: ..... Avoid Lexmarks, Canons, and Brothers."
Looking at www.sane-project.org few lexmarks work (2 out of 10 listed)!
No real sign of your printer and Linux bar a lone unanswered cry for help!
And finally to cap it all if you hadn't been convinced yet:
Which will give you some insight into how seriously they take the
measures the other Niall described!
I think it's safe to say that anyone who buys one of those for Linux has
no cause for complaint when they get the privilege of categorising it as
a paperweight for linux-printing.org.
