I successfully installed a driver for one of their all-in-ones. I never bought 
the unit but the driver installed. There is no support for their scanner 
capability is twain. I did not buy it because I did not want to take a 
chance. Their "development kit" is a misnomer and will not enable you to 
write a driver if you knew how?

Google for the URL of where to get these drivers (they are from Lexmark).

Very strange though--since IBM is in the forfront of Linux development--that 
there is no proper Linux support for their printers!
