Install Lexmark X5650 under Slackware 13.0, share it on the network
I have a Lexmark X5650 I want to install on my Slackware 13 desktop server, and I would like to share it on the network. I want to be able to print to it from any PC - the scanner can just scan to a folder on the Slackware box, and I can share the folder.
The Slackware box is running SAMBA and I am able to share files/folders from the computer on my Windows SOHO network no problem.
So, is there any way to make this happen? I tried installing the deb package and the rpm package from the Lexmark site, and both failed. So then I tried to install using the browser-based CUPS tool, but I couldn't find a PPD file on the web. I tried to use the existing one that most closely matched (x73), but no dice.
I love Slackware for its out-of-the-box server capabilities, but it's a huge pita do set something up as simple as an all-in-one.
Any help out there?
