    [SOLVED] Installing Lexmark Z645 in Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron


    This is an old problem I've been having with this printer. I currently have to use my Windows XP partition to use it. I figured I would give it another try in Ubuntu as this is the last thing not working. I am following 2 tutorials. One is Here:OpenPrinting database - Printer: Lexmark Z645 Ubuntu Install .The other is Here: HOWTO: Lexmark Printers - Ubuntu Forums . ! big problem is that I am having getting to cd/Desktop in Terminal. I have typed "cd/Desktop" and "~ cd/Desktop". With cd/Desktop I get:
    harry@harry-desktop:~$ cd/Desktop
    bash: cd/Desktop: No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~$
    With ~ cd/Desktop I get:
    harry@harry-desktop:~$ ~ cd/Desktop
    bash: /home/harry: is a directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~$

    You can see my Dilemma. Can't even get started. I have downloaded the
    /home/harry/Desktop/Lexmark/CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz and made the Lexmark Folder and put the Tar.gz in the folder. Heck I have even extracted the Tar.gz in the folder in case I needed to. So I have the Folder and the Tar.gz side by side inside the Lexmark folder sitting on my Desktop. Any Help on this would be much appreciated. Thank you in Advance.

    PS. I know already that the Ubuntu hardware compatability charts list the printer as a boat anchor but I am still giving it a try. Weatherford if you're out there I figured I'd give it another stab at it.

    2nd road block. I am following the command lines word for word. Even copyiing and pasting. Terminal readout here:
    harry@harry-desktop:~$ cd /home/harry/Desktop
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mkdir lexmark
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz lexmark
    mv: cannot stat `CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz': No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz lexmark
    mv: cannot stat `CJLZ600LE-CUPS-1.0-1.TAR.gz': No such file or directory

    It looks like you are aren't properly using the mv command on the command line.

    To move a file, use the mv command like this:

    Code:
    mv /path/to/file_name /new/path/to/file_name
    Keep in mind also that once you start to write files and create directories outside of your /home/user_name directory, you'll need to use sudo before any commands you issue.

    OK, I thought I knew where I was screwing up and tried different commands but still getting nowhere. Terminal Stats here:

    harry@harry-desktop:~$ cd /home/harry/Desktop
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mkdir lexmark
    mkdir: cannot create directory `lexmark': File exists
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv /path/to/file CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1/new/path/to/CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1
    mv: cannot stat `/path/to/file': No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv /path/to/file CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1/new/path/to/CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1
    mv: cannot stat `/path/to/file': No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv /path/to/file CJLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1.TAR.gz/new/path/to/CJLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O1-1.TAR.gz
    mv: cannot stat `/path/to/file': No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$ mv /path/to/file CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1.TAR.gz/new/path/to/CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1.TAR.gz
    mv: cannot stat `/path/to/file': No such file or directory
    harry@harry-desktop:~/Desktop$

    If your username is 'harry', it would work like this:

    Code:
    mv /home/harry/Desktop/CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1.TAR.gz /home/harry/Desktop/lexmark/CjLZ6OOLE-CUPS-1.O-1.TAR.gz
    ...providing you have a 'lexmark' directory on your Desktop, and of course the upper/lower case of each and every letter is important.

    Check out LinuxCommand.org for more info on working with the command line:
