    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.

    ***In Jaunty 9.04 you need to install libstdc++5 for this to work***

    and I also ran ldconfig and restarted cupsys

    couldn't do because there was no .gz at the end
    but z600 showed up in the folder where it was supposed to be
    and the test came out ok with
    "direct z600:/dev/usb/lp0 "Lexmark Inkjet color printer" "Lexmark Printer""

    but no luck on my end.

    thanks anyway.
    Well, got the driver from lexmark for the 2650 ( I think) and got it to partially install but my computer still says the 5470 is not plugged in USB wise and I can't finish the full driver install until the USB cord is connected. Help!

    I have a Lexmark X2600 and when I was using 8.10 I downloaded the driver from Lexmark and walked though the Lexmark set up and I was done, everything worked. Now I upgrade to 9.04 and it will not print at all.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I do not want to go back to 8.10 if I don't have to but I will if that is the only solution.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    I am working with Jaunty and have a lexmark x5150 and installed the z55 driver. The printer will not print the test page, and displays the following status:

    /usr/lib/cups/filter/rasteroz55 failed

    What can I do to fix this problem? Any help is appreciated.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Everyone, I am now able to print!!

    I did not realize I was getting the "cups-mising-filter" error when I was trying to print. I had a backup of my etc folder with my old /etc/cups/ppd folder and I copied its contents into my 9.04 cups folder and ran the command found here

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=590256

    Everything works perfectly now!!
