    So have you been able to add the printer in Print & Scan but find that you cannot print? Or are you having a problem with adding the Lexmark to the Mac?

    Assuming that this model uses the Lexmark 6500 series printer driver available from Apple, as shown in this article, then you should not have got the software not available message. So since you did get this and you also get a communication error when you do print, then it could be the connection between the Mac and printer. If you are using a USB cable, then try another cable. And with a USB connection, ensure you are connecting directly from the Mac to the printer and not using a USB hub.

    I am having similar problems on 10.8.5.  It scans fine, it copies fine, it prints a test page fine but when I try to print anything else, it just hangs.  No error messages at all.  It just says printing but does not print.  It will sit like that foer days if I don't cancel the print job.

    Just so we're all on the same followed the instructions in this article to add your printer?
