    Read the error message, it says you can't have spaces, or over 127 characters, thus you must have done one or the other of the above, e.g. "sexybeast"

    If you look on Linuxprinting.org, the Z25 isn't supported either. Your best bet are tutorials like that or following the instructions for a close model (Z23?).

    I had similar problem under Debian. My solution was to add ........Foomatic-db packages and then run print manager again. It works for me with Debian, you might want to try this although I can't guarantee it'll work with Gentoo...

    If you read the page, you'll see
    For Z25 (and of course Z35 , use the z35 driver:
