    I have a Lexmark printer that doesn't have drivers for mac, when I plug in my printer it sees the printer but wont let me print to it. Is there any way that I can set up this printer to use?

    Have you checked the manufacturer's website? That would be kind of odd if they provided no support for macs.

    EDIT: Which printer are you using?

    Whenever you ask for help with a peripheral, please give the specific model of the peripheral.

    And unfortunately, neither does sourceforge.net (gimp/gutenprint/cups)

    Have you checked on the OS X install disks ?

    I don't think the printer is compatible with a MAC.

    second hand advice

    See if Compaq offers any support for their Lexmark made printers.

    If you've tried one on the list that is in the same family of printers, and it didn't work, there's no use trying the others.

    -you're probably out of luck on this one

    The technical term for your printer is a paperweight.
