These drivers seem not to support to be uploaded via the Add Printer
Wizzard. This isn't related to Samba. If you try uploading the driver to
a Windows host by pointing to the ntprint.inf, the list of drivers stays
also empty.

You should ask Lexmark, if they have a driver supporting point'n'print

Or you can try to integrate the drivers manually:

* If I installed the driver locally on a Win7 computer, all neccessary
files are copied to %Windir%\System32\spool\drivers\x64\3\ (do this on a
host, that never has a driver installed. Otherwise there may be other
files from other drivers in there too).

* See
Start with step 4. You can copying the files from the Windows host
(location see above) to the print$ share, too, of course.

This link doesn't work. I searched for the printer on the HP download
area, but it only provides me the hp univeral driver. This one I could
upload successfully (tried PCL5 + PCL6 64bit). At work I use the HP
univeral driver PS, which works also with Samba.
