Lezmark Z615 printer

Autostatic suggested this back in November 2005 and it worked for me in PCLinuxOS 0.92 today.

Hopwefully it will work for you too. Good luck.

Just browse to and download the two tarballs:

Now open a console and su to root, cd to the directory where you downloaded the tarballs and type:


tar -xvzf z600cups-1.0-1.i386.tar.gz -C /

Followed by an enter and:


tar -xvzf z600llpddk-2.0-1.i386.tar.gz -C /

Followed by an enter and:



Followed by an enter. The printerdriver should be installed now and you should be able to configure it through the Mandriva Linux Control Center.
