    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    printing marges uncorrect
    Hello all,

    I have a problem with printing: the marges are incorrect, especially the left marge. It seems that the whole print is shifted to the left. I get this in every program I print in (OPenOffice, Gedit, Browser etc.).

    I have Lexmark P707 printer and use the Z600 CUPS driver (it is the only driver that actually works).

    Does anybody else have this problem or do you know how or where to correct this?

    Help greatly appreciated!
    And that was pretty much 4 years ago.......
    Today i got exactly the same problem !!! com'on guys tell me that someone knows how to fix it or install properly a P707 on Linux ( i got Karmic 64 bits).

    cheers anyway !!

    Once the driver is properly installed,
    go to system/administration/printing.
    You will see the printer listed as Lexmark -z700-p700-series.
    Right click on it, go to properties.
    In the column on the left, click on "Job Options."
    Most of the settings are here.
    (be sure to open up the 'More' sections, there is more than one).
    For printing of text, you can set margins for all four sides, along with lines per inch, and characters per inch, pretty print, word wrap, and there is even a command box to enter other options.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Great i didn't see the more option arrows the first time....
    but still not enough, I've been changing the left margin and that didn't fix the problem.

    The more option box is a cool idea, but donno which option name i have to type in the box.
    How to get more option names?

    And Nobody for another driver ?? maybe it will be better for a p707

    Cheers

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Contact Lexmark and ask them for a driver that works (and perhaps also for a way of contacting the developers of the other driver, which might know an easy fix).

    It's unlikely it will have much effect, but you've got nothing to loose by doing it.
    And the more people do ask for GNU/Linux drivers, the more likely they will be made.

    P.S.: Just found this via Google:
    http://users.cybercity.dk/~dko12479/
    Have you tried it already?

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Hi, thx that's not a bad idea at all, i'll e-mail them asap.

    For the second one,
    i can't create any .deb . I donno what's going on. Alien is saying that there nothing for 64 bits architecture.

    Terminal said :
    martin@martin-desktop:~$ cd /home/martin/Modèles/
    martin@martin-desktop:~/Modèles$ alien -d lexmark-z700-cups-driver-1.1.1-1.i586.rpm
    Must run as root to convert to deb format (or you may use fakeroot).
    martin@martin-desktop:~/Modèles$ sudo alien -d lexmark-z700-cups-driver-1.1.1-1.i586.rpm
    error: incorrect format: unknown tag
    Warning: Skipping conversion of scripts in package lexmark-z700-cups-driver: postinst postrm
    Warning: Use the --scripts parameter to include the scripts.
    Package build failed. Here's the log:

    make: *** [binary-arch] Erreur 1
    find: "lexmark-z700-cups-driver-1.1.1": Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
    it's a bit in French , my bad.
    What am i supposed to do in this case? Force to install in 32bits??

    Third solution: i don't know what to do with those tar.gz I don't know how to compilate... sry i'm a real noob

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Okay, guys. I did everything in the instructions. Found the Z600 driver in the printer configuration. tried to print a test page, but here's what I got:
    "Print Error: there was a problem printing document 'test page'(job 3): stopping because the scheduler could not execute a filter."
    how do i fix this filter problem?

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Try running:
    Code:
    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/cups/backend/z600
    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertoz600
    Then it should work.

    Otherwise, post "/var/log/cups/access_log" and "/var/log/cups/error_log" for more info on the error.

    @mooortin:
    It should be possible to extract the files from the .rpm files or use the tar.gz package.
    I don't have time to look more into it now, but I will as soon as I can. I could probably make a debian package for it.
    If you have already solved the problem, let me know.
    (et sinon, pas de problème pour le Français. )

    Thx KIAaze if you get time for it,
    oh, and no problems have been solved... except for the french one

    How do you a make a deb package from tar.gz ? it's for 64bits architecture, and it's about CUPS....

    I'll try find out...

    hmm... i'm not getting the filter problem anymore. i tried to print a test page again and here's what it says:
    "Print error: there was a problem processing document 'test page.'"

    i'm trying to post my /var/log/cups/access_log and /var/log/cups/error_log but it's not letting me.
