Just for your reference I was having issues with 64 bit printing from my x4650 on Ubuntu 10.10 and installing libstdc++5 fixed all my issues.
Thanks for the post!
I am on precise,trying to install lekmark x4975.
dpkg stops after few seconds with that message :
Execute: dpkg -i --force-architecture lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb > /tmp/selfgz3599/pkg/files/dpkg_msgs
dpkg : erreur de traitement de lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb (--install) :
analyse du fichier '/var/lib/dpkg/tmp.ci/control' vers la ligne 9 paquet 'lexmark-08z-series-driver' :
blank line in value of field 'Description'
Des erreurs ont été rencontrées pendant l'exécution :
Execute: rm lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb
so I ask what is the matter there?
printing on SD card and transfer to printer is a solution too,if dont know better,thanks
may it works with my lexmark x3300 printer?
Anybody tried this with ubuntu 12.04? Using the same drivers and having libstdc++5 doesn't help anymore....
I am trying this with raring and the installer fails every time at the same place as navtex did. My printer is a x4690, and none of the suggestions in this thread have worked so far.
I was finally able to get the printer part to work by following these commands I found elsewhere online:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch xz-lzma
wget http://downloads.lexmark.com/downloa....deb.sh.tar.gz -O lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.tar.gz
tar xzvf lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.tar.gz
./lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh --noexec --target lexmark
tar xJvf instarchive_all
dpkg-deb -I lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb
dpkg-deb --raw-extract lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb raw-lexmark-archive
sed -i "/^ $/d" raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control
dpkg-deb -b ./raw-lexmark-archive fixed-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i fixed-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb
Basically it looks like it builds a new .deb package from the files in the original package. After I installed the new "fixed" version the driver were listed in the add printer dialog under Lexmark.
