My wife has a Z605 (at least I am pretty sure that is what it was...) which she had me install under Ubuntu.

Unfortunately, it was far from simple. Even when installed, it was not great, as it would
lock up often and require CUPS to be restarted nearly every time she wanted to use the thing.

Have you found any guide currently that you have looked at yet? I am pretty sure this is the guide I used for her machine.

Post Lexmark Z605 driver not installing

I have a Lexmark Z605 running on my FC 6 box, I used Lexmarks drivers (modified the packaging to get them to actually install), and it works really well!
After googling for Debian systems (such as Ubuntu) + Lexmark Z600, I found this page here,

I hope it helps with your problem!

Ok, the guide MechDave gave me worked fine, but i don't get the necessary .ppd file anywhere.
Thanks MS3FGX, but that guide didn't make it

Lightbulb RE: Lexmark Z605 driver not installing

Does your printer work ok now tho?

If not try opening http://127.0.0.1:631 in your web browser (it is the cups web config), and add the "Lexmark Lexmark Z600 Series", the other printers in the admin tab do not work!

If your printer is working disregard the above instructions
