Dell 720 on SuSE 9.3

Using all kind of info off the net, I've figured it out: you can actually use it:

  1. Download the z600 tarball from Lexmark

  2. Extract all it's components (few TCL scripts and RPMs)

  3. install the RPMs (the cups one needs --nodeps to install, as it's compiled against a oddly numbered version of cups)

  4. reconfigure the printer using yast as Lexmark Z600 and print the text test page (otherwise, you'll waste a lot of ink).

  5. if you're using apt-get, you'll notice that it won't work anymore (because of the cups rpm) and it's going to want a


    . great that

    RPM::Ignore { "z600cups"; };

    is allowed :)

  6. Now you can use your fav apt frontend.

Hope someone finds it useful...
