Description of problem:
Support for the Lexmark z55 printer is not included with the release.
Installation of the driver from Lexmark does not work. The install
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to use a lexmark z55 printer. In my case, the printer is
connected via a usb port.
2.Download the driver from lexmark's web site.
3.Try to install.
No shippable driver is available for this model, as far as I am aware.
However, see http://www.linuxprinting.org/suggested.html for
suggestions for printers which do have good quality drivers.
here it is:
This driver requires its own backend, rather than being usable with
foomatic -- we don't have infrastructure to support drivers of that
type yet. The CUPS DDK driver kit is in a similar position.

Fedora Core 1 is maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates
only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the
Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in
the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the
version to match.
NOTE: Fedora Core 1 is reaching the final end of support even by the Legacy
project. After Fedora Core 6 Test 2 is released (currently scheduled for July
26th), there will be no more security updates for FC1. Please use these next two
weeks to upgrade any remaining FC1 systems to a current release.
works wonderful with my tutorial
Please set to worksforme. Please change the status to assigned.
clearing the needinfo bit as per comment #6. Not sure if this should be set to
WORKSFORME -- shouldn't it just work out-of-the-box?
hmm... right. It should work out of the box, but I do not have fc5.
I'm going to move to "devel" and we'll see what happens from tehre.
Infrastructure problems noted in comment #3 have been resolved for FC6.
