Hi - I just recently got a new Mac, and I downloaded the Mac OSX printer driver update for my Lexmark Z22 printer, which is a fully functional printer.
everything seems to work in terms of installing the driver update, until it gets to a point where it says the print center will open, and then nothing happens. there's also a button that says "open print center," but nothing happens when I click on it, and my computer doesn't seem to have a program called Print Center. basically, I can't move on from this step, and I'm not sure what to do. I have a feeling the solution is simple, but I'm not a printer expert at all. any suggestions?

The updated driver found in the Lexmark website should include the Productivity Studio application, however, the OCR scan software can be installed using the installation cd that came with the printer. Here's the link to the Lexmark website where you can download the Lexmark X4690 updated driver, http://bit.ly/aF110u. Download and install the software. Hope this helps. If you're going to encounter an issue or you'll need more assistance, just leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
You need to update your driver by getting the latest software in the Lexmark website here.
During software update what usually gets updated are the basic functionalities. In this case it looks like the scanner is not being updated as well. Hope this helps.
