I have installed it in Ubuntu with this tut:

NOTE: I got stuck at converting the packages from rpm to pup or pet, can someone help me out?

if you download this file:

http://www.downloaddelivery.com/srfilecache/CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz

then extract it somewhere...maybe make a temporary directory /z600. then if you change to that directory, cd /z600, you'll see it contains a file z600cups-1.0-1.gz.sh . this file is a self-extracting archive to extract it type:

Code:
sh z*.sh -keep


you might get some complaint about missing libtcl8.3.so, but it still extracted on my computer, (i think it just wants libtcl8.3.so because it has a graphical tcl installer). you should then have a directory, called installer, containing a number of files. the only two that i think you need bother about are the two z600....rpm files. if you just click on them, they should open up in Xarchive, then just Select All & Extract to /.

if they don't open with Xarchive, you'll probably need to download unrpmfull from here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=7148#7148

N.B. i'm unsure of the warning given here:

Quote:
rpm -ivh --nodeps *rpm
Why the --nodeps option? The RPM packages expect a specific version of CUPS, and most people will already have a later version installed. But if you like you can try installing without it first.




you'll also need to download, & install, cups. see here:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1490608102&t=13466

then follow the instructions to get cups to add the printer to cups as default. why isn't it simpler than this you may ask? ...you would have to ask Mr Lexmark!

This is the driver I use.

I've created a script to install the drivers in Puppy (Actually in any distro). I will upload it later today as I'm at the office right now.

Cheers.

Here is the script.

I've tested it in multiple versions of Puppy including 4.0

After installing this you must "add" the printer to CUPS (Setup | CUPS printer wizard)

when configuring
- on device select your printer
- on make select "lexmark"
- on model select the one at the bottom (Lexmark Z600)


It requires ldconfig which does not come on the Puppy CD but it is included in the devx_xxx.sfs.

Alternatively you can install ldconfig as a .pet from this link (for Puppy 4.0)

This script installs the lexmark Z600 drivers that can be used with
many lexmark printers.

This script needs to be run with root privileges

./install_lexmark_Z600.sh

It downloads the drivers from the following location
http://www.downloaddelivery.com/srfilecache/CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz

It requires access to the following commands
rpm2cpio
cpio
ldconfig

the following printers are confirmed:
Lexmark 5700 (black & white only)
Lexmark X1100
Lexmark X1110
Lexmark X1130
Lexmark X1140
Lexmark X1150
Lexmark X1155
