Hi Tim. Welcome to the Ubuntu Development Mailing List.

I used to have a Lexmark printer and found that Lexmark has great lack
of support for Linux drivers for their products.

I am glad to here that somebody (such as yourself) is willing to give it
a shot of developing a driver for the Linux platform.

Not that I can help you, but I wanted to say 'Welcome' and 'Good Luck'.

Please keep us informed on your progress.

Chris Jones
