I gave up on mine... I consider Lexmark all in one winprinters to be about as 
usefull as boat anchors... I got rid of mine.. it was damned greedy in 
windows on ink anyway... always ran dry of the blue one... at the critical 
moment...halfway through a hi rez colour print on the expensive paper just 
after having done a perfectly good draft quality print on normal paper.

Got a hp psc 1350 all in one... It's a real printer with full innards and can 
do the photocopying trick without having to be connected to a running windows 
computer... scans in Linux as well.

and it's running Linux itself... I know cos when I tried to install debian on 
another box that had the printer hooked up, the debian installer listed the 
printer's internal ext2 partitioned disk as an installation target...
