    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    I'm using Breezy now. I bought a Dell All-in-one 962 photo printer 2 weeks back. I found out by googling that Dell 962 is Lexmark X7170.
    I got the driver for Lexmark X7170 from this link.
    http://www.lexmark.com/US/products/i...7170_rev2.html

    I ran alien filename as normal user (not as root). I then got the deb file. I then issued
    $sudo dpkg -i x7170llpddk_2.0-5_i386.deb
    (Reading database ... 95758 files and directories currently installed.)
    Preparing to replace x7170llpddk 2.0-5 (using x7170llpddk_2.0-5_i386.deb) ...
    Unpacking replacement x7170llpddk ...
    Setting up x7170llpddk (2.0-5) ...
    $

    I then rebooted the system. When I went to add printer, I didn't see the driver under either Dell or Lexmark. I would appreciate if someone can help me.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    I tried this methog and it did not work for me. I have a x1150 That I have never been able to get to work in linux. Here is what happens...

    h3avyarms@ubuntu:/usr/lib/cups/backend$ ./z600
    ./z600: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Everything works fine untill that step. I'm trying this on a fresh install of Ubuntu 5.10 and the printer works fine under windows. If I ignore this and continue with the instructions it will say it is printing the test page but nothing happens, I really need some help here. TIA

    Nevermind, If you change the margins it will work. Still no test page though.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    This works fine on my z700, but 1) It won't print with a one inch margin on the left side even if (as in OO.o) there is one; and 2) printing something from gvim is somewhat fine, but a bit of text is moved forward or backward (and it suffers from #1 too).

    EDIT: Using OO.o 2.0 now prints out the left and right margins but the top margin now isn't there.

    HELP!!! I have Lexmark Z601, but can't get your procedure right!!

    I figured I had to install alien, and I figured out how to move to the lexmark folder with the cd command.

    but then, in the next step, sudo tar xv..etc.. following happens:

    eine@eine:~/Desktop/Lexmark$ sudo tar xvzf z600llpddk-2.0.tgz -C
    tar: option requires an argument -- C
    Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
    eine@eine:~/Desktop/Lexmark$

    What??

    I type c (not capital):
    eine@eine:~/Desktop/Lexmark$ sudo tar xvzf z600llpddk-2.0.tgz -c
    tar: Du kan ikke angi mer enn ett av «-Acdtrux»-flaggene #(you can't specify more than one of the Acdtrux flags- translated from norwegian.)
    Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.
    eine@eine:~/Desktop/Lexmark$

    Could you help me through the basic steps?

    sudo tar xvzf z600llpddk-2.0.tgz -C /

    The trailing slash there is important, as -C refers to the corresponding directories.

    eine@eine:/usr/share/cups/model$

    I made the bold typing. Next step?

    If somebody has time enough to explain the next few steps with backports and stuff, so I can get my z601 up and running, I would be delighted. Was a bit more difficult than just cut and paste. Understanding where to be, where to put in the commands, where the stuff is installed, etc. is a bit more than I have been doing with my windows...
