I am having the same problem with Ubuntu 8.04...

Can't find a driver for the X2600 or the z600.

Lexmark no longer allows access to http://www.dl.lexmark.com/pearl/*
To get downloads you have to go through the GUI and while there is a Linux pulldown menu, it doesn't work. There is a 3rd party source for the lexmark-inkjet-08-driver-1.1.i386.tar.gz.zip, but I don't have the URL. I guess Lexmark has sold its soul to Bill Gates.

Not a bug in system-config-printer, converting to question.

According to www.openprinting.org (http://www.openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Lexmark-X2600_Series) it should work with the lexmark-inkjet-08-driver

I was albe to donwload, unzip and install the file lexmark-inkjet-08-driver through the above link. The printer works (so far).

Can you help with this problem?
