    I wanted to add that if you have more difficulty than I did making a boot disc, you can always have one sent to you if you can wait for snail mail. It's on the site somewhere.

    Re: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers

    Hi,

    Just upgraded my dauthers laptop from kramic to lucid (i386) but now I have difficulties to find libstdc++5 : the link that I followed for installing a Dell A920 = Lexmark X1150 on kramic :

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...inters#Lexmark

    which contains a reference to the Z600 drivers and which depend on libstdc++5 :

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/libstdc++5

    comes back with an error : two or more packages specified (libstdc++5 jaunty) ??? In fact when moving up the tree one does not find Jaunty any longer : all links for jaunty came back with an error.

    I could find it from hardy : libstdc++5_3.3.6-15ubuntu6_i386.deb
    but that one throws up an error when trying to install it :

    Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: gcc-3.3-base (>= 1:3.3.6-15ubuntu6)

    Is it a case that a more recent version of libstdc++5 (say linstdc++6) needs to be soft linked to ? Does any one know if this will work with the lexmark.z600-0.4.deb ?

    Also the lexmark website (as indicated in one of the earlier posts) does not give a linux version for this model (only Win and MacOS).

    Any help much appreciated ...

    I think it should be useful to update the https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ha...inters#Lexmark page to include your suggestion : it would be, I'm sure, greatly appreciated by people trying to install such kind of printers.

    How can we achieve that ?

    Very easily: Just create a launchpad account and you should be able to log in to edit the wiki.

    I can do it, but I need to finish something else now and I would also like to see people edit the wiki themselves instead of always waiting for others to do it.

    Ok, done that : added a section for Lucid Lynx with your suggestion and added a similar link for the Karmic Koala section (http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic-backports/libstdc++5) as an alternative source.

    Installing Lexmark x1270 on a desktop with Ubuntu 10.10 amd64 installed.

    I followed the steps outlined here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...=Lexmark+x1270

    At the part where I double clicked on the libstdc++5_3.3.6-17ubuntu1_i386.deb icon to install it, I was informed that it was the wrong version since I have amd64.

    So after some searching around this Link worked.

    What I did:

    1) I installed libstdc++5 from synaptic.

    2) I dl'd and installed getlibs-all.deb by double clicking on it's icon.

    3) I dl'd and installed lexmark.z600-0.4.deb by double clicking on it's icon.

    4) I went to System/Administration/Printing.

    Added my printer from the list and chose
    the z600 colour inkjet driver.

    5) I printed a test page. Now I need to buy ink.
