SUSE & lexmark z65 != working ;


i'm new to linux and i have a problem installing my lexmark z65
at first i couldn't untar the file i downloaded @ lexmark site
but then a friend did it for me on a windows enviroment
so when i tried to install the file i got this error

Verifying archive integrity...OK
Uncompressing Lexmark Printer Driver line 133: ./install: Onbekend bestand of map
The program returned an error code (127)
but i found a possible solution on google

Just do the following steps:
 1. After you untar the CJLZ65LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.GZ file. Type this command
   sh -keep
 2. Ignore the error warnings when you encounter it. On the same directory
(where you launched the sh command) you will find an 'installer' directory.
 3. cd to the 'installer' directory and there you'll find 2 rpm files. Type
these commands
   rpm -i --nodeps z65llpddk-2.0-2.i386.rpm
   rpm -i lexmarkz65-CUPS-1.0-1.i386.rpm

Once you've successfully installed the rpm files your system now has the z65
printer driver. You need to add manually a printer queue using "lpadmin"
command or in the CUPS web server (hxxp://localhost:631).
hxxp because i can't post a url (i don't have 5 posts yet )

now my problem is i get the installer folder but it's empty

so could someone help me plz i really need my printer to work thx

Lexmark printers are junk. Go Canon or at least HP. Canon printers usually have cheaper cartridges and decent print quality, and HP printers have awesome printing quality.
