It is enclosed script (.sh.tar) File , so extract it , by Right-click and Extract option ,

Then simply double click the lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh file ,which will provide Options window where you should

click the "Run in Terminal" button or run the script file via command-line.

Further Follow the Instructions if any , asked by installer.

They have provided the Official instructions here. But it doesn't mentions Ubuntu 11.10 , which is currently your System, i guess it is Compiling so it will do.
