Having installed Novell SuSE 9.3 (their latest before the version 10 beta) I need Linux Printer and Scanner Drivers for my Lexmark X6170.
Problem is Lexmark make drivers for this printer for Windows only, and frankly it's a great printer/scanner for the money, partly because it includes a sheet feeder for the scanner (MOST "so-called" all-in-ones DO NOT) and partly because it's quite a fast printer AND scanner.
I'm hoping someone has written or is writing drivers because I don't think that I can.
Although the Novell SuSE installation disk includes many Lexmark printers, it is a fact that NONE of them are similar to this printer/scanner.
There are also one or two very similar Lexmark models WITHOUT the scanner feeder that your drivers will probably work for. Having said that, I am sure that the choice of the scan going either to the flat bed(?) or the scanner sheet feeder is made BY THE SCANNER ITSELF, not the software driver.
Finally I do believe the same problem might exist with the later model, the Lexmark X7170 (also with scanner sheet feeder), and indeed similar drivers might be effective: It is certainly worth looking at these models simultaneously.
