Lexmark ms317dn

#1 Post by dumbo » Sun Jul 15, 2018 12:33 am

Hi,
I would very much like to install MXLinux17 but won't do it unless I can use my Lexmark printer. When I used the printer configuration given - using the live OS - I was heartened by the fact that MX recognised the Lexmark 3 series. This is usually good news.

However, when I printed out a test page I got:
ERROR
configurationerror
OFFENDING COMMAND:
setpagedevice
STACK:
--nostringval--
false
792
612
0
0
792
612
--nostringdevice--
5

This means nothing to me and I'd appreciate some help here, please.
I'm trying to find the details of my computer set-up and will post them when found and necessary.

You might consider to download latest cups and ppd-driver from lexmark support page.
They do provide debian deb-packages.
