    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Hello, I was trying to install the driver per the instructions in the first post for this topic and my system is completely screwed up now.

    After executing the following step:
    sudo tar xvzf z600llpddk-2.0.tgz -C /

    My user no longer existed in the sudoers file. My user no longer has any rights to do anything.
    I rebooted, but now Xwindows can't even start.

    What happened, and how do I recover?

    thanks,
    john

    help!!!!

    Ok, I went through the instructions in the first post to attempt to install a lexmark x2350, 3 in 1 printer. things seemed ok and drivers installed and backend seemed to be ok. however when I tried to print anything out the pages were in a constant state of processing and the printer just sat there like a large paper weight.

    I then shut down my computer and rebooted on my windows partition to make sure my printer wasn't faulty, it worked fine. I again rebooted my ubuntu 6.06 partition and tried to check if the printer worked and got this message "Cup server could not be contacted" and my printer was no longer to be found.

    So I went through the process again and this time when I got to "/etc/rc2.d/s19cupsys restart"
    I got the response
    "bash: /etc/rc2.d/s19cupsys: No such file or directory"
    I then navigated to the folder and found that s19cupsys had disappeared

    What happened and how do I fix this problem? And what do I do with this large paper weight that is consuming space on my desk and my sanity?

    Thanks
    Joriad

    I've been tasked with getting a Lexmark P4350 working under ubuntu 6.06. I found this thread where several with Z or X based printers have had sucess. Should I try these steps on a "p" printer?

    Well I figured the advice would be to just try it. So I did. No errors, but no results.

    Got this at the end:

    $ ./z600
    direct z600:/dev/usblp0 "Lexmark Lexmark 4300 Series" "Lexmark Printer"

    Nothing happenes after I add the printer. Not even the sound of an attempt of the printer to do anything.

    Suggestion?

    Re: HOWTO: last steps in Dapper don't work

    Hi,

    I followed your guide in Breezy: it worked very good, but in Dapper, the printer failed to work, so I followed the howto again. it gets down to this: I get no output when I type ./z600. So I added
    Code:
    usbfs         /proc/bus/usb usbfs   devgid=14,devmode=0660 0 0
    in /etc/fstab.

    When I typed

    Code:
    sudo mount usbfs
    I got this:
    Code:
    mount: usbfs already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy
    mount: according to mtab, procbususb is already mounted on /proc/bus/usb
    Any suggestions?

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Thank you so much. I just tried this with Dapper and a Lexmark X1150 and it worked perfect. I was really desperate since I told my 3 year old that I would print out a picture of Thomas the Train that we had painted. There were only a few things I had to change in the instructions. Simply things like changing the directory and such.
    Thanks, Jereme

    You are a lifesaver! We've been struggling with these POS' for years! Confirmed on a Lexmark Z517 in Dapper. Thank you!
