    I only started using Ubuntu this year, and am only having problems installing the driver for my Lexmark Z35 Colour Jet Printer.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I had the same problem for a Z65 model. It seems Lexmark don't want to support Linux drivers anymore
    I'd suggest using google to search for the driver file from an archive site.
    eg. http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/dis...srepo/sources/ looks
    to have the Z35 driver file: CJLZ35LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz
    Download this file and follow the instructions on this forum changing
    the file name references to your driver filenames.
    I did this with a Z65 driver file: CJLZ65LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.GZ
    and finally got a successful test page. Using this HOWTO I got it
    working in about 15 mins!
    The key for my system (KUbuntu 8.10) was the /etc/fstab file update,
    plus needed to install v5 of libstdc++:
    sudo aptitude install libstdc++5

    Unfortunately I didn't find this HOWTO first and was trying an
    install method from an older forum topic specifically for Z65 which didn't work which wasted a few hours beforehand.
