printing from linux to a windows connected lexmark x75 printer...help


Im running RedHat9 I went to printer configuration added a new queue.
I selected the Networked Windows (SMB) and selected printer as Generic and driver as Raw Print Queue.

when I go to print, the printer gets ready to print (makes some noise) then stops. it doesnt feed the paper and print the page.

the printer works fine from windows.

what am i doing wrong?

looks like a printer driver issue. if I remember it right, lexmark supplies an old driver for that printer in their ftp site.
