If anyone can explain please can it be step by step? I just got on here using Ubuntu 12.04 and I just went and got a Lexmark X2600 printer. I just wish it was as simple as Windows, but no.

This is the only printer that seems to not be in the search thing and I looked on here and these guys just seem to be talking in another world to me. Please break it down to me, and what do I need to get or do?

For Ubuntu 32 bits

  1. Download this file to a directory.

  2. Unpackage the zip (unzip *.zip )

  3. Execute the script (sudo sh *.rpm.sh)

  4. Fill in your device ( x2600) and name it (whatever order it should be)

For Ubuntu 64 bits

For this you'll need to install the 32-bit CUPS libraries, to match the 32-bit install script.

  1. On a terminal execute:

sudo apt-get install libcups

  1. Download the file from Lexmark (*.rpm.sh.zip )

  2. Unpackage the zip (unzip *.zip )

  3. Execute the script (sudo sh *.rpm.sh)

  4. Fill in your device ( x2600) and name it (whatever order it should be)

  5. Start the maintenance option when the install was finished and test the printer
