Installing Lexmark Linux Drivers in 64-bit Debian-Based Distributions

3 posts in this topic

As Lexmark just released Linux drivers for a great deal of home printers that were previously unsupported in Linux, I rushed to write an article on how to make it work (yeah, they fell in the trap of making a 32-bit rpm package only and calling that a "Linux" driver):

I hope this will help a couple of you to get their printers working in Linux.

I've edited my article to provide a link to the .deb version of the package, which is mentioned in the readme but was nowhere to be found. After figuring out the real download location of the rpm version of the package, I just replaced rpm by deb in the name and boom, I got the deb version instead. Lexmark only forgot to link to it from their main website.
