    Bad news. I don't believe this printer is currently supported under linux. OpenPrinting database - Printer: Lexmark z845

    WINE has this to say about printer drivers on their website
    3.4. Can I use Wine to install drivers for my hardware?

    No. With the possible future exception of some printer drivers, Wine requires your hardware to already be working on your operating system. The technical reason for this is that Wine, like most applications, runs in user mode and not kernel mode.
