    Roo you did good , I really appreciate you ... Thank you soooo much for your help.
    You should check into being a mod, you are so smart and helpful.

    it came up with an error bug log report thing... don't know man...

    Stopped because the scheduler could not execute a filter...

    Printer 'Lexmark" X1100-Series':'cups-insecure-filter'

    I tried to debug it it just made the report and I saved it. Can I send it somewhere can i post it .. The company I am doing this for needs the printer to work.

    No offense, but I literally fell asleep at the "computer" Saturday night.

    anglican did most of the work, I am just trying to get it to be simplified. I should PM him...

    As for filing a bug report to launchpad (that's who you send it to), I do not think they will get it done anytime soon as likely they will not see it as important (due to the small number of users of that printer)
    I am still looking for a workaround...

    OK, I've fixed my original message so the link for the driver doesn't get mangled by the forum software, it can now be cut and pasted (but no-longer clicked on, you can't have it both ways ).

    The error the installed filter is giving is due to incorrect ownership of the filter, the following commands should get rid of that:

    sudo chown -R root.root /usr/lib/cups/filter
    sudo chown -R root.root /usr/lib/cups/backend

    One more thing...

    I seem to recall that the Z600 filter also requires the libstdc++5 library to run. This isn't available for Karmic (I guess that Canonical have dropped this as it's only needed for fairly old and out-of-date software) but you can install the Jaunty version which seems to work OK with Karmic. Download from:

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i3...dc++5/download

    Just a note for anyone stumbling upon this thread. OK, I finally got around to seeing what happens myself with my Lexmark x1150 . In Lucid (and also later Karmic kernels) there is a problem caused by usbfs no-longer being included in the kernel; usbfs was already deprecated and found to cause some problems with udev. Old drivers like z600, however, require it and will silently fail! There is a way to get the printer working, not IMO a terribly good way, but it works. You will need to give the following commands:

    Code:
    sudo mount --bind /dev/bus /proc/bus
    sudo ln -s /sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices /proc/bus/usb/devices
    You can test that the printer driver is correctly installed with the command:

    Code:
    /usr/lib/cups/backend/z600
    Which should give output something like:

    direct z600:/dev/usb/lp0 "Lexmark Lexmark X1150 Series" "Lexmark Printer"
    Once you've finished printing you might want to undo the above as it may well break other things, so type:

    Code:
    sudo umount /proc/bus
    Hope this helps.
