Hi all,

My problem is this; Lexmark, in all their wisdom, have decided that it takes effort to produce drivers for the Lexmark Z54 on Linux, so have done nothing. Unfortunatly, I already own a Lexmark Z54 printer, so am rather stuck. I know that you can use the Z43 driver, but that isn't good enough quality for what I need it for. My query is whether it is possible to put printer drivers through wine much like Ndis does for Wireless. Please help me, in your mercy!

Thank you

David

No, sorry.

I want to know if it is possible to use wine to run the Linux printer via a windows driver.

Thanks anyway

Never mind: I have gone to buying a new printer

The HP Deskjet 6540 supports linux fully, so I have gone for that. It is also a nice price Wink

Ok, your solution seems to be genial, but I don't have enough cash for a new printer.
I've just migrated from win xp to Mandriva 2005.
I am using (currently NOT using) lexmark x1170 , and don't know if the windows drivers will work with wine. Will they?
Please help me:)
Regards

Have you tried it with the gimp-print Z43 driver, this is claimed to give maximum resolution.
