I want to know how I should go about installing a printer. My printer is a Lexmark z645 and is recognized as Bus 1 Device 4: ID 043d:0100 Lexmark International, Inc.

When I go to Administration -> printing -> new printer

as i am going through the setup, the printer is shown as being on USB port 1. I just don't know what driver to set or where to find a ppd. If i keep hitting next after choosing generic, and try to print a test page, the printer makes a noise, but never does anything. it just says the printer status is idle

There is a good HOW-To here in the forums on how to install the drivers for that printer, by the way it uses the Z600 drivers from Lexmark just make sure the you install the compat-libstdc++33 ,if you don't it will setup but will not print.
