Installing Lexmark Z515

Postby jjhendri on Wed Feb 21, 2007 1:15 pm

I need help on installing Lexmark Z515, I'm new to using Linux. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I can be told how and in what directories stuff needs to be in would be most helpful.

Ok, thank you but where do I get the driver from? The Z515 is not listed in the list of approved printers. I tried the Z11 but that didn't work.

AlsaPhil & Starkey, thanks for the reply but I could not find the information for the f :? following reasons: don't read spanish and not a member of ubuntu. If someone can point me in the right direction to what I need and where to install. A step by step guide would be helpful for LinuxMint

Try this link, it'll either work for you (as it did for me a long while ago with my z605) or maybe you can find the z500 series printer driver at Lexmark and use the same technique to make a z500 ppd file. Good luck :-)

And lexmark driver download he talks about here:
