After upgrading from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04, I have printing issues with Lexmark x340 :

Printing from Libre Office or a pdf file: if the document is more complex (longer than 2 pages), the first page is printed correctly, followed by several of pages with some hieroglyphics. This can only be stopped by switching the printer off and then on again.

In case of simple documents, the first print usually comes out OK. Then, if another print is requested, the story begins again: unwanted characters, on many pages.

To overcome this problem, I now do the following: print a document, switch the printer off and back on, print again, and so on...

Does anyone has a fix?

After several months of having problems with printers, because we migrated from Windows to Linux in our company which have more than 200 computers... now we found the driver which works on all our printers. The driver is ljet4 , just found some similar model of printer with ljet4 sufix on name and it will work. I wrote more on my blog : http://linuxibos.blogspot.com/2013/01/driver-that-works-on-allmost-all.html

We didn't try on your model but every similar model we have worked very well.
