Description Riku Seppala 2005-02-02 13:57:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
Dunno if this really is the correct way to report this but hopefully
now atleast you know the problem. I have lexmark p3150 all-in-one
printer. (printer and scanner) FC3 recognized it correctly as lexmark
3100 series, but printer configuration dont have it listed. 

There is Developer's Kit on lexmark website:

Also, there is linux driver for it: 

Though I couldn't make it work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run printer configuration with lexmark p3150 attached (or some
other lexmark printer)
2. try choose correct lexmark model, not listed

Actual Results:  No driver, can't install

Expected Results:  choose the correct model from printer
configuration. Start printing :)

Uncertain license => not a lot we can do with it.
Comment 2 Riku Seppala 2005-02-04 16:43:38 EST
The driver at http://users.cybercity.dk/~dko12479/ is GPL. At least that what it
says in the readme: 

Z55 Sample CUPS Printer Driver is distributed under GNU General Public License
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-03-30 10:32:09 EST
Does say what version (for example).  You need to put the entire license
agreement in the package, at the very minimum.
Comment 4 Riku Seppala 2005-03-30 10:56:43 EST
Maybe it's my bad english but I don't understand what you are saying :) So sorry
if my comments are wrong.

In the package
is the file COPYING, which is GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE Version 2, June 1991 ...

That file is not the complete source.
