I have been trying to search for a third party driver this morning but no luck. I went to Lexmark's main website and poured through their driver pages only to find they don't have any for my model. I think I'll just buy another printer, but will wait for the sales in January to see if that throws up any good deals. I'm not too bothered about the printer as it was a budget model, (just over $100).
This seems one of the oddest problems I've read about. You can print by dragging and dropping but no other way? And no Word Docs but you can others?
My son-in-law has a Lexmark... ummm, I forget the model, perhaps an X80? "HIS" Lexmark didn't support the Mac... not even Tiger. The workaround for him was to leave it connected to his old Windows computer and share it on the network where he can access it from his Mac.
But back to the problem... if you can print to the Lexmark by dragging and dropping into the schedule I see absolutely NO reason you shouldn't be able to print to it in other ways. I'd be very interested in finding out why this is happening if you find a solution. And also let us know about the 'no word docs' thing... that's goofy as well. - JamesJM
