Well I finally got fed up with the school charging $0.08 per page so I decided to get my own printer. I found a sweet deal on a Lexmark Z32 and decided to jump on it. The thing prints like a dream from Windows, and there are linux drivers available. I grabbed them from lexmark's website, and everything seemed to install fine. However, whenever I try to print a test page, I get this:
lpr: unable to print file: client-error-document-format-not-supported
Does anyone know what's up with this? Any suggestions on how to get printing up and running? Thanks.

You might want to give Linux Printing.org a try. They have some NICE instructions on how to use different printing services for many many printers. Unfortunately that model only works partially under linux.
Click Here for your model.
I'll give that a shot. Thanks. It claims it works partially, but that's only with the free lxm3200 drivers. Lexmark includes an official driver for the Z32 in rpm format that I managed to get on my gentoo box. Now it's just a matter of getting it to work, and figuring out how to use it with cups.
Alright...I got it entered in cups, using the lexmark drivers and foomatic. However, when I try to print I get a client-error-not-possible error. Anyone ever had this?
Got it! I had to install the commercial drivers, and then grab some sort of custom lexmark foomatic from http://www.linuxprinting.org/show_pr...um=Lexmark-Z32 and install that. My Z32 is humming along quite happily, using CUPS with beautiful quality Thanks for the help!
