Hi,
I'm trying to install a Lexmark Z515 printer on my fedora, but it still doesn' work. I know, that Lexmark and Linux are always bad together and I know, that a Lexmark printer isn't the best choice, but it is the only printer I have momently, so it can't be help.. :(
While searching with google I found these two workarounds:
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Lexmark_Printers
http://www.aquarionics.com/article/name/Making_the_Lexmark_Z515_work_under_Debian_Linux

But, as you can see, the workarounds are for debian/ubuntu and gentoo, so can anyone explain me, how to use this workarounds for my fedora?
I tried a bit, but still my printer doesn't want to do anything. the drivers seems to be installed, but my printer refuses to print a test page.

thx!

Take a look this howto; it is for suse 9.3 but works in fedora too

and dont forget to install gcc compatibility packages;


sudo yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33 compat-libstdc++-296
