I think that my printer stopped working with the switch to gnome 3 or unity. Yes I have tried 32 and 64 bit os's. Here is the driver

In order to actually install the driver, you need to extract it and then open up terminal and type sudo and then a space. Then drag the script into the terminal window. Here is what it said in the diver install window:

I removed the unity , gnome, and gnome3 tags as your question seems independent of these tags. –  bodhi.zazen Feb 28 '12 at 0:40
    
The Driver in which you want to install is not supported past Ubuntu 10.10 Per the web site it has listed: Operating Systems: Ubuntu 9.04, Ubuntu 9.10, Ubuntu 10.04, Ubuntu 10.10, Debian 6.0, Linux Mint 10 –  Ringtail Feb 28 '12 at 3:05

This should work:

  1. sudo apt-get install lzma
  2. sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
  3. tar -zxvf lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh.tar.gz
  4. ./lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh --noexec --target lexmark
  5. tar xvf lexmark/instarchive_all --lzma
  6. dpkg-deb -I lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb
  7. mkdir raw-lexmark-archive
  8. dpkg-deb -e lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN
  9. dpkg-deb -X lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb raw-lexmark-archive
  10. cp raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig
  11. sed "/^ $/d" raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig > raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control
  12. rm raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig
  13. cat raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control
  14. dpkg-deb -b ./raw-lexmark-archive New-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.deb
  15. sudo dpkg -i New-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.deb

To remove the package run: sudo dpkg -P lexmark-08z-series-driver:i386

Why not juts give a try to install the package like this:

gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders

or

touch /var/adm/SuSEconfig/run-gtk ; SuSEconfig 

There is a bug for same reported here and seems it has not been solved till now. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdk-pixbuf/+bug/619003
