    either download the file and move it to that folder, or use the actual name of it.

    type ls to list the files
    if the file has a different name you can use tar -xvzf C*.gz

    martin@martin-desktop:~/lexmark$ tar -xvzfCJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz
    tar: CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    martin@martin-desktop:~/lexmark$

    I keep getting the same message, it doesn't matter how many times i try it. I have downloaded the file four or five times now and am beginning to think something is wrong with the download side of things rather than my ignorance. Have attached screen shot showing downloaded file and terminal saying file is not there.
    Anybody got any other suggestions? please

    In the terminal you need to be in the same directory as the file you are trying to extract. Right now you are in ~/lexmark but the file is in ~/Desktop

    So first you must either:
    cd ~/Desktop
    to change the working directory of the terminal OR move the file to where you want it with
    mv ~/Desktop/C*gz ~/lexmark

    also, martin-desktop is the name of your computer, not the folder you are in.

    ok sorry the screenshot is a bit misleading, I did move the package to lexmark and still got the same message, The screenshot was just to prove to myself that the files were there and not just a figment of my imagination

    try this:
    tar -xvzf CJ
    then hit tab and enter

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    thanks for trying to help but it still says no such file. i think i'm going to give up on that one for now as i just got a nashua lazer printer given to me and that works fine using a hp driver so i'm not in a rush to get the lexmark running.

    Lexmark z65 on Kubuntu Intrepid (lenny/sid) or Debian (sid/experimental)

    above should work...

    you can also use http://localhost:631/admin to set up your printer through the CUPS administration web interface.

    * steps 1 / 2 might not be required, but they clear tcllib tklib errors when you `sh CJ*.sh -keep' and try to obtain the rpm's.

    export _POSIX2_VERSION="199209"

    The gnu utilities normally conform to the version of POSIX that is standard for your system. To cause them to conform to a different version of POSIX, define the _POSIX2_VERSION environment variable to a value of the form yyyymm specifying the year and month the standard was adopted. Two values are currently supported for _POSIX2_VERSION: ‘199209’ stands for POSIX 1003.2-1992, and ‘200112’ stands for POSIX 1003.1-2001. For example, if you have a newer system but are running software that assumes an older version of POSIX and uses ‘sort +1’ or ‘tail +10’, you can work around any compatibility problems by setting ‘_POSIX2_VERSION=199209’ in your environment.

    Thank you Black Hole Sun your How-TO for the Lexmark Z600 worked first time for me, and after many hours of trying many post on different sites I had begun to believe I wasn't going to find a solution your How-TO is very much appreciated

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    I had to install this driver on a friends PC and I encountered some problems which I solved and would like to document then here for future reference for any other people encountering a similar problem.

    When I ran:
    halimah@halimah-desktop:~$ cd /usr/lib/cups/backend
    halimah@halimah-desktop:/usr/lib/cups/backend$ ./z600
    direct z600:/dev/usb/lp0 "Lexmark Lexmark X1100 Series" "Lexmark Printer"
    halimah@halimah-desktop:/usr/lib/cups/backend$

    Which is what it should have been.

    However when I sent the jobs, they went but nothing was happening with the printer although I had sent the drive to z600 from System>Administration>Printers. The printer manager suggested that perhaps the printer was not plugged in.

    So when you go into the printer configuration you see the x1100 series on the side, click on it. and the following should read:

    Dev URI: z600:/dev/usb/lp0

    Make and Model: Lexmark Z600 v1.0-1

    Set them to the default.

    Originally they were set to x1100 specs which clearly did not work. Click on change and the info should come up for you to change it because that is where the collision is i.e you have a driver installed and the location of the device is not the right one, so it cannot print to the device
    I apologise if it is long-winded. I hope it helps someone.
