I´m a new born Linux baby (1 week old) and still cry all day, not understanding the world around me. So please, experts, be patient...
What I´m trying to do is get my Lexmark X125 printer running. I´ve downloaded a driver in a tar.gz archive which contains a couple of .xml-files.
What I believe I have understood:
- My SuSE 9.0 uses the CUPS program to handle printers
- CUPS needs so called .pdd driver files to install the printer
- Having a ppd file SuSEs YAST setup tool could do the rest
- I have to use a program called foomatic to generate a .ppd driver file from the xml file set. (This program seems to be installed)
How do I do that? I´ve read the readme´s on linuxprinting.org and the readme´s coming with the driver. It´s all chinese to me.
Any basic hints out there in plain english? Thanks a lot.
