Installing Lexmark Z700/P700/P3150 linux printer driver under Debian

http://users.cybercity.dk/~dko12479/


Here is a quick note for other Debian users that have a Lexmark printer. Install cups, alien and foomatic through apt (apt-get install cups foomatic alien). Download the rpm packages from the above site and use alien on them. You will definately have to restart cups '/etc/init.d/cup restart' for the changes to work. I ended up rebooting the whole computer for the new printer driver to show up in the cups driver menu.

This works really well under unstable.
