And a reply from them:

Marc,

I will forward this to our legal and web teams for evaluation and
consideration. Thank you again for contacting us.

Thanks,

Daniel


My new reply, trying to get other stuff:

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for helping me with this. Can you email me when there's anything new about this?

On a different matter, I know that Lexmark provides no Linux driver for this printer, but I was wondering if Lexmark considered releasing the documentation that would be necessary in order to let people from the CUPS project write a driver on their own. For the x4690, documentation on the HBN3 protocol would be very useful in order to write a driver to use the printer over the network. It would cost nothing to Lexmark to release the information, and Linux users would be happy about it. Do you think there's something you could do about it?

Thanks for your time and efforts,

-Marc-Andre


We'll see what it gives.
