Tip & How-To about Lexmark X7675 Wireless All-in-One Printer

2008 printers to print wirelessly in Ubuntu Linux.

How to make 2008 printers to print wirelessly in Ubuntu Linux. So far this work around is only applicable to 2008 products with Linux support.

1. Install any 2009 Linux printer driver – The purpose of installing any 2009 printer driver is to get lxnet. Currently, the 2008 printers don't have the lxnet.

Not lexnet nor lexnet3 but lxnet...
NOTE: If you misspelled this one - you will get an error... during CUPS or during printing..

2. Install the 2008 Linux driver for the printer.

3. Copy lxnet from /usr/lexinkjet/lxk09/bin/ to /usr/lexinkjet/08zero/bin.

From terminal:
sudo cp /usr/lexinkjet/lxk09/bin/lxnet /usr/lexinkjet/08zero/bin/


4. Add wireless printer through CUPS.

URI: lxnet://:1/
Not lexnet nor lexnet3 but lxnet...
NOTE: If you misspelled this one - you will get an error..."bad device uri" or "client not possible"

5. Thank you....

I am going to buy a Rocoh Aficio 1600 Le. Does it work on Ubuntu and Linux Mint without problem


Are you going to be connecting this directly to a computer? Or are you going to set this up on a network?

Either way, it should work.

For Network Printing, you will need to setup a print server on your Ubuntu, or Mint Linux, and tell the print server what the IP Address of the printer is.

You shouldn't have any issues.

problem aboout printing to a POS printer thru lpt1 using ubuntu


Hello my friend, Did you all ready try to used linux software in your program before? Cause if you are using Windows base platform before the setting and support capability of Windows Platform is not the same as Linux platform. Particularly the driver of the Printer you are using if it is not supports the linux platform then eventually it will not work. try to check the internet particularly in this site www.ubunto.org and see in the forum any tips and ways to resolve the issue of drivers in linux platform.

Thanks
