    No luck with the Lexmark drivers. I am also trying to modify the MacOS PPD files, but not look so far

    Solved

    You need the foo2hbpl driver for this HBPL printer protocol. You can get the driver at the following site:

    http://foo2hbpl.rkkda.com/



    UBUNTU NOTES
    ------------
    Install build-essential, tix, foomatic-filters, groff, dc FIRST:
    $ sudo apt-get install build-essential tix foomatic-filters groff dc

    $ wget -O foo2zjs.tar.gz http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ tar zxf foo2zjs.tar.gz
    $ cd foo2zjs
    $ sudo make uninstall
    $ make
    $ ./getweb 1020
    OR other printer
    $ sudo make install install-hotplug cups

    For 7.10 and later users:
    $ sudo system-config-printer

    For 5.10/6.06/6.10/7.04 users:
    $ sudo gnome-cups-manager
    [configure ColorMode = Color if a color printer]
    $ sudo make cups

    Ubuntu has a bug in gnome-cups-manager with Color, so you must
    restart cups. No other distro has this bug.

    If that doesn't work, then fire up:
    $ firefox http://localhost:631

    And click on:
    Printers -> Set Printer Options -> Color Mode -> Color
    Then click on:
    Set Printer Options
