Lexmark Z25?


I've got a Lexmark Z25 (I know, its a piece of junk, but humor me ) and need it to work in Linux (Mandrake 9.1). I've tried the drivers on Lexmark's website, but it just keeps spitting out blank pages when I ask it to print. Am I missing something obvious?

no you aren't missing much....lexmark is poorly supported in linux, and i also too have a z25 and i couldn't even get it to spit out blank paper people have succeeded to get this printer to work but how? i do not know....the best i can suggest to you is, is to try browsing around the linux printing website and see if you come across anything in the fourms or elsewhere on that site....i know i seen stuff z25 related on that site, so maybe some of that stuff may give you a lead.

Try also the Lexmark Linux Driver Forum. Personally my solution was to get myself an old HP, available at goodwill often for a few dollars.
