I m trying to get my Lexmark X4690 working, Everything was ok with Ubuntu 11.04 but since I did a clean install with 11.10, I reinstalled the Lexmark driver but I m unable to print, but the scanner works ok.
First you have to install the ia32-libs, because Lexmark only offers drivers for 32-bit system:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Get the driver from Lexmark and extract it anywhere you want.
Now, there are two options:, if you want the simple and quick way, skip to step 4, if you want to get your hands a little dirt, do the following:
./lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.sh --noexec --target lexmark tar xvf lexmark/instarchive_all --lzma dpkg-deb -I lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb mkdir raw-lexmark-archive dpkg-deb -e lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN dpkg-deb -X lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb raw-lexmark-archive cp raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig sed "/^ $/d" raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig > raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control rm raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control.orig cat raw-lexmark-archive/DEBIAN/control dpkg-deb -b ./raw-lexmark-archive New-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.deb sudo dpkg -i New-lexmark-08z-series-driver-1.0-1.i386.deb.deb
Or You can get the deb package from here.
