Check the archives - I seem to recall there were msgs relating to Yahoo
voice etc.

Someone just gave my son a lexmark & I found that all you need to do is
download the lexmark driver from Lexmark (CJLZ35LE-CUPS-2.0-1.TAR.GZ),
then unpack. Use the archive manager to unpack the ppd file in the
data.tar.gz file.

The ppd file (Lexmark-Z35-lxz35cj-cups.ppd) is all you actually need.
Then, copy that ppd file into /etc/cups/ppd. Now when you bring up
System|Administration|Printing you'll be able to select your printer driver.
