FEDORA 3 - Lexmark Printer Setup

Please help a newbie out.....TIA

I have a new FEDORA box and I'm trying to install the Lexmark T520 printer drivers.

I've dowloaded and de-comprelssed the gz files from to my /tmp directory and ran the rpm -ivh drivers-MVprint......rpm command.

I don't know what to do next. My ultimate goal is getting to the point were the printer model will show up on the GUI printer queue setup "wizzard" and obviously using the printer.

Can somebody help?

Keep in mind this is my first printer setup in Linux and I'm a newbie.

Thanks again !!

You can setup your printer by going to http://localhost:631/
(Thats what I did for my HP printer)

Also, look for help-files on the Lexmark homepage
