Buggy driver of Lexmark X2670?

I bought a Lexmark X2670 printer/scanner device today.

I downloaded their Debian Linux driver from Internet. When trying to install, it was firing an error message that CUPS 1.2 or above is necessary despite I have CUPS 1.4.1. After some magic with the source it was installed. (Don’t ask me, search it in Internet, because I forgot where it was written. If you successfully install it, write a comment here about how to do it.)

But my Linux (version 2.6.32-3-686) has crashed twice today. I suspect that the driver is buggy.

Yes, I sent Lexmark a letter asking to make their driver open source.

  1. A little off the subject perhaps, but a request for people to think about the ethics of purchasing things like compatible toners and printer ink. Do try and think about, for example, the parts your item is manufactured from, the human rights of the employees where they’re manufactured and the green credentials of retailers. Oh, and try to recycle instead of throwing away. Thanks!!!!
