Question Downloading driver for Lexmark

Hello,
I'm trying to set up my Lexmark s605 printer to enable me to use it for sending e-mails. This can only be achieved by enabling Wireless. I've got the download info for the driver from Lexmark into the terminal and thought all was fine, but then at the end it says "Error nothing to do". This is the file info.
file:///home/john/Desktop/lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz
Can anyone please help ?.

Re: Downloading driver for Lexmark

I suppose you have to extract the file and then running it (by double - clicking on it and, then, choose run in a terminal) to install the driver ...

That's a very weird file name. ".rpm" is an installable package file, ".sh" denotes an executable shell script, and ".tar.gz" denotes a compressed archive.

Open a terminal and run:

Code:
cd ~/Desktop
file lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz
If it is indeed a gzipped tar archive, run:

Code:
tar xf lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz
This will extract the file(s) from the archive – presumably "lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh" but that's not guaranteed. Report back what you see and we'll take it from there.

no kidding

.... 1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz
that is VERY ODD
are you 100% sure of the file name ,for this 64 bit file?
lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wJRE-1.0-1.x86_64.rpm.sh.tar.gz

x86_64 is for a 64 bit OS

googled it
found a very UNTRUSTWORTHY torrent
then
http://support.lexmark.com/index?pmv...&userlocale=EN

fedora 12 ?
are you 100% that that is the one of the 9 on the page ?

---------------
well it is an odd "rpm.sh.tar.gz"

fileroller says it is a bad archive
some playing
fileroller thinks this 39.5Meg file is 2.5 GIG
still bad but it is a tar g-zip ?? something

ask there support

As for the file itself – it's completely broken or truncated at Lexmark's end.

My advice is also to seek support directly from Lexmark, but I wouldn't bet on them having a clue I'm afraid.

Re: Downloading driver for Lexmark

Thanks Gareth, I am in touch with Lexmark, but, as you say, they're up a gum tree at the moment, they are still trying though, so you never know.

Re: Downloading driver for Lexmark

Gareth
Spent a few hours yesterday with Lexmark. When setting up the e-mail option on the printer there is a "AUTHENTICATION" section. The problem is that my isp (Sky) use SSL (Secure socket layer) and Lexmark do not offer this choice among their options in that section, so the setup fails. That's it, They suggested that I find a isp who uses their options but I'll just carry on as before and use the pc.
Thank you for support
Kind regards
John

that sounds like complete bull ****
i and others have NEVER seen something called a "rpm.sh.tar.gz"
that right there is F'ed up
an rpm IS a compressed file
there ARE NO spaces in it for tar
and seeing as a rpm is a compressed file there is NO need ip gz it
now the sh ??
odd but one could use a shell script to install a rpm ?? but WHY rpm's already HAVE a script and a tool to install them

Re: Downloading driver for Lexmark

Yes, they did change to another file ending in RPM.SH. This file has now been installed in my pc. The remaining problem is not being able to use the "e-mail" option on the printer because of the reason I explained yesterday, the "AUTHENTICATION" problem. That problem they cannot solve and they suggested I find another ISP who would use one of their options which are :- NONE, PLAIN, PLAIN TLS, or NTLM. I know Yahoo and Hotmail do not and I don't know which others to try, I could be trying for ever and a day so I have decided to accept things as they are and carry on using the PC to send documents.
