    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    works for lexmark z603 on 8.04.1 (should work for other printers as well)
    this is how i did it, starting on home folder (defalut if you open from Applications>Accessories>Terminal

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install alien libstdc++5 # libstdc++5 was suggested as needed for compatibility issues
    $ mkdir lexmark # creates subfolder named lexmark
    $ mv CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz lexmark # moves the package folder lexmark
    $ cd lexmark # goes to said lexmark
    $ tar -xvzf CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz # extracts the driver.
    $ tail -n +143 z600cups-1.0-1.gz.sh > install.tar.gz # extracts the binary portion of the script.
    $ tar -xvzf install.tar.gz # extracts the contents produced by tail
    $ sudo alien -t z600cups-1.0-1.i386.rpm # converts unusable rpm packages to tgz. ignore script-related warnings.
    $ sudo alien -t z600llpddk-2.0-1.i386.rpm # converts unusable rpm packages to tgz. ignore script-related warnings.
    $ sudo tar xvzf  z600llpddk-2.0.tgz -C / # extracts the tgz's to / putting the files in their right place
    $ sudo tar xvzf z600cups-1.0.tgz -C / # extracts the tgz's to / putting the files in their right place
    $ sudo ldconfig # DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP or your printer backend won't find required libraries
    $ cd /usr/share/cups/model # changes folder where you are operating
    $ sudo gunzip Lexmark-Z600-lxz600cj-cups.ppd.gz # unzips the ppd, which should _not_ be gzipped
    i then rebooted my pc. when it booted up i open the terminal again and
    Code:
    $ cd /usr/lib/cups/backend
    $ sudo ./z600
    i returned nothing, but i guess it means something. i then rebooted again, just to make sure. then opened System>Administration>Printing.
    selected Z600 Series (it _was_ there) but printing tests didn't work. so i chose offer ppd file, and looked for the one on /usr/share/cups/models and when it asked whether i wanted to keep configurations, i chose not to. tried printing test page and it worked.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    HI,

    I went through the tutorial, everything went fine until trying to mount the usbfs.

    I get this output:

    Code:
    jason@jason-desktop:/usr/lib/cups/backend$ sudo mount usbfs
    mount: usbfs already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy
    mount: according to mtab, usbfs is already mounted on /proc/bus/usb
    I added this to the /etc/fstab file:

    .usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=14,devmode=0660 0 0

    thanks,
    bp

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    it *might* be because it is a tutorial for LEXMARK printers. i'm sure you will find instructions for DELL printers somewhere on this forum.

    Hi,

    thanks..I looked for that, but I was told (somewhere, in some post) that the Dell AIO printers are just rebranded lexmark's and that driver might work.

    will keep looking.
    thanks,

    Please try out my debian package for the lexmark z600 driver:

    http://temposs.googlepages.com/liblexz600core0.deb

    Just install it and then set your printer to be a Lexmark z600. Hopefully this will work for you.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    couple of problems: first, don't have a

    Code:
    /etc/rc2.d/S19cupsys
    S20 is there, but only restarts with sudo. normal?

    also: upon typing ./z600 in the given directory I get

    Code:
    me@home:~$ /usr/lib/cups/backend/z600
    /usr/lib/cups/backend/z600: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    any help?

    (I also lost wireless in the middle of all this...hopefully that's the router. any ideas there?)

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    querent, have you installed the libstdc++5 library? This is required for the driver to work.
