    Lexmark S600 cups-insecure-filter Help!

    XUBUNTU 12.10
    I have a problem with my Lexmark Interact S605. I installed it using the DEBs from lexmark.com, but I'm having the cups-insecure-filter problem. On my dad's laptop I didn't have this problem. I tried changing permissions of
    Code:
    /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/printfilter
    In my printer settings I get the following error
    Code:
    Idle - Directory "/usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin" has insecure permissions (040775/uid=0/gid=2).
    I have also tried changing permissions of the entire folder to no avail. I also deleted the printer from the Printers menu and from the "Lexmark Printer Utility" and reinstalled all the DEBs I downloaded. I can repeat the steps if necessary.

    ls -l of the file /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/printerfilter
    Code:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 146921 Aug 16 02:35 /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/printfilter
    ls -l of the directory /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/
    Code:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root bin  755469 Aug 16 02:35 lxhcp
    -rwxrwxr-x 1 root bin  110411 Aug 16 02:35 lxusb
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 146921 Aug 16 02:35 printfilter
    If my Xubuntu install being spread out on different drives causes a problem, here is my fstab.
    Code:
    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
    # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
    # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

    Anyone else have this problem? I've got something confidential that I MUST print. Thank you

    I'm sad since I have no help. No one else must have this problem.... Is it in the wrong category?

    Since no one could help me, I finally figured it out.

    Run this in terminal:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin
    Code:
    sudo chgrp root /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/printfilter

    Dude, I had about the same problem.
    I just had to adjust the path to /usr/local/lexmark/lxk08/bin (/printdriver).
    I still get an error but now the error about permissions is gone.
    So THANKS a LOT for posting how you got your problem solved

    same problem for me for a Lexmark S305 on xubuntu 12.10.


    I just change the permission on the file :
    cd /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/
    sudo chmod 755 printfilter

    and it solves.

    I had the same problem on using Mint 13. Sitro's post solved it.

    Any suggestions on whether to throw my Lexmark Platinum Pro905 from a rooftop, interstate bridge, or at a moving train?

    I've had this problem off and on for the past four years. Any time I decide to switch Linux distros, the rotten printer throws a fit and says some file (not always the same one) has insecure permissions. Once in a while, it'll work (poorly), as it did on Debian 6, and it worked beautifully a few Ubuntu versions back. Right now I'm running Mint 15 MATE on one machine and Ubuntu Studio 13.04, and I get the same error on both: "File '/usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/printfilter' has insecure permissions."

    I've tried chown and chgrp on the file to several different users, including eric (my username), root, 700, and 750 on the Mint computer, but no luck. It was a pain trying to troubleshoot on the Ubuntu Studio computer, so I thought I'd figure it out on Mint and apply the solution to my other computer.

    Did What Sitro suggested and changed the permission on the file :
    cd /usr/local/lexmark/v3/bin/
    sudo chmod 755 printfilter

    if it does nott solve it. Try to right click on your printer and take off shared. That worked for me.
