I want to print using a Lexmark 5630 printer, and it appears they only have drivers for Mac and Windows. Does CUPS support it, with maybe some reverse-engineered driver, or am I at a loss?

The web site support.lexmark.com currently lists "Printer driver for 32-bit Linux distributions with Debian-based packaging". – Faheem Mitha Sep 16 '11 at 3:42

I would start by looking at the Open Printing website.
