Where art thou Os X print drivers for x7350?

Is there any hope for me in using a Lexmark x7350 printer with OS X? I am unable to find suitable print drivers, and the interwebs suggest there are none. Thanks!

Your best chance would have been finding a driver over at openprinting.org but they say you are screwed. Sorry!

Caveat: I've been thinking about this with an old printer I have with no drivers. I have not tried this (because for my printer, I think I'd need Win98). I didn't want to be first responder for this reason. Aaaaaanyway....

Could you run a virtualised instance of windows under parallels or vmware or something, and then network-print to the windows VM? I'm hoping someone who knows more about this stuff will come along and confirm/deny my idea.

Have you tried the Lexmark Printer Driver?

TheRaven, I have and it does not contain the proper drivers. And Pomp, I was thinking the same, however, the user would not be comfortable with this solution. Thanks... :)
