ndiswrapper is for wireless devices not printers

Just a thought, I think it might be worth checking Dell. There is some
similarity if I recall with some Lexmark and Dell units. I had a free
Dell printer at one time and I used a Lexmark driver. But I had to build
it from source I think. Google/linux
