    Question [SOLVED] Lexmark installation


    Hi,
    I've just installed Fedora 14, with gnome desktop and I'm trying to install my lexmark s605 printer. The message I received was /usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed. Can someone tell me what this means, and what I need to do .
    Thank you

    foomatic-rip likely cannot find a driver for that printer. I do not see that printer in the list of supported Fedora 14 printers.

    I did see that Lexmark has a Redhat/Fedora rpm packaged driver for that printer. Have you tried downloading and installing it?
