Now, it may be that it won’t work with an a, but if I got no output from that last step, then I can’t be sure whether I’ve done everything right and whether this is a no go for my printer. I have a Lexmark Z33 so I tried the Z35 driver and everything worked fine until the last instruction: On my terminal, it says kdeprint: A note to newbies: Thank you very much.

So close but so far I set mine up to connect to the printer using smb: It looks like this problem was down to the USB port. Hmm, I never had to go get the ‘tail’ file. I followed the lknux, but when I try to run. When I tried to add it again and just accepted the default name, it was fine.
