I wonder how it works for "another distro" because according to
http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Lexmark-Z600_series_z601_z602
there is no open source driver available.

In general regarding Lexmark, see

"Useless ... Lexmark JetPrinters"


Have you tried just adding the windows ppd to cups?

Only for real PostScript printers the PPD file alone is sufficient.
All other printers require a driver, i.e. a program which produces
the printer-specific data.


Kind Regards
