Too be honest the Lexmark printers are notorious for being badly
supported. It appears there isn't an open source driver available which
may explain why the printer doesn't work as standard.
There are some instructions for Ubuntu 8.04 which may help although
rather than logging on as root you'd need to use the sudo command...
