Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I got a Lexmark X1100 working once by using a 600 series driver, the printer would print but I never could get the scanner to work. Unfortunately, Lexmark's support for Linux is poor and that is being kind. HP printers seem to be the best supported printers.

The x6675 is not listed but the nearest x6570 is and it is a paperweight: http://www.openprinting.org/show_printe ... mark-x6570 as is the next model up (x7170) so I think you are out of luck. As exploder says go HP, or even Brother - their Linux support is top notch.
