Lexmark drivers are pure puke/crap, demond, what is it doing?

So, if you’re trying to debug you girlfriends computer (or maybe I should say significant other) and wonder what the thousands of daemond-lines in your syslog is all about, it’s lexmark’s evil printer drivers.

So my little girl has taken a stroll on the big intarwebs and found much the only crapware that actually exist for Linux, and installed that. I guess a lot of people who don’t have a clue, just uses Linux because Someone(tm) put it on their machine, fall for that crap.

Lexmark doesn’t want to play fair, they have big, huge, proprietary software for printer drivers. It’s continiusly printing garbage to syslog, and it’s polling everything it can find every five seconds. Basically, it drains your battery, eats your ram and fills your disk with crap.

That’s not mentioning the cycles the crapware written in Java is also stealing from you. So, how to remove it?

sudo  apt-get remove lexmark-legacy-wsu lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wjre

The above line didn’t actually work. apt-get puked on it. So in the end I just did:

sudo dpkg remove lexmark-legacy-wsu
sudo dpkg -P lexmark-inkjet-legacy-wjre

That worked AFAIK.

So, now I know how terrible Lexmark really is. I already knew they’re drivers looked like a monster (and what the hell, I have to FIND drivers for the printer to work? Normally everything Just Works in Linux, but not so with craptastic proprietary shit-drivers).

I actually told my off parents after they bought a Lexmark printer a year ago. That’s a mistake they’ll never do again…

I’ll paste some of the syslog so that it’s nice and searcable:

Update: if you don’t want to remove the drivers, just stop the insanity. Dirk has a good solution for you:

You might be interested that I found a solution for this problem. In short: create a wrapper script for demond that sets ENABLE_D_LOG=0 before calling the original demond.

  1. Thanks for putting this up I knew something was screwy and this saved me a lot of effort.

    Unfortunately I am the fool to blame for buying the lexmark printer. Yes it works they said. Too late to return it now.

    Next up time to bitch to the source/

  2. Got a reply from lexmark

    Here is your Service Request # 1-6190722651

    Thank you for taking the time to communicate to us why our product did not meet your expectations. We have every desire to address your needs and provide the best solution available to resolve your issue as soon as possible.

    The generic postscript driver will not work with the Lexmark S505. I will be forwarding this case to our Product Engineers in that way we can try to check why our drivers are behaving this way.

  3. tqft: That’s a different reply than what I got a year ago. But anyway, I was directly confrontational because I was so angry that the printer didn’t work.

    You see, the drivers didn’t have 64 bit version. And just the fact that they’ve got a big Java-crapware for printer “driver” instead of just a nice, single crossplatform PPD-file is horrible.

  4. They didn’t answer my question why they couldn’t just make a PPD that works with CUPS and behave like a normal citizen in the printer world.

    So, in the email from 2009, they said this:

    I understand you are having difficulties on installing your Lexmark printer X2600 and making it to work with your current operating system. However, I regret to inform you that this printer model is not compatible with Linux Ubuntu 64 bit. For it to work with a 32-bit platform, you need to downgrade your OS to the 32-bit.

    Actually telling me to reinstall my parents laptops only to let them install their really uneeded proprietary stuff.

  5. sudo killall demond sudo chmod a-x /usr/local/lexmark/legacy/bin/demond

    problem solved.

    stupid proprietary software licenses. Someone needs to repackage this printer driver in non-free.

  6. Before you continue emptying your colon on Lexmark, you need to hear the other side of the argument.

    Lexmark Postscript printers are the industry standard. They are more durable than a Sherman Tank and more cost effective. Printers which once had a list price of $10K-$20K can be purchased on the refurbished market for a few hundred dollars. These printers have toner cartridges which print 7000+ pages each.

    I bought my first Optra R brand spanking new. I shopped around and bought it in pieces to get the price under $10K for 1200 DPI with duplex. I needed it for printing wax-hold-out which was used to shoot copper plates for book printing and 1200 DPI wasn’t even a wet dream for most other print vendors. I got 9 years out of that thing and must have put 3 palettes, not boxes, palettes of paper through it. What finally killed it was a massive power spike which got through 3 levels of power protection in front of it.

    I bought a refurbished Optra R+ with duplex for $120 from some on-line vendor. I got 6 years out of that printing in high enough volumes that Concord Supply still has me on their weekly cartridge sale mailing list.

    Now I have an Optra S 1855 with duplex. If you visited my Web site(s) you will see that I put out quite a few books. This entails a lot of printing and shipping off for proofing. The Optra S I purchased for under $300 from a refurbishment place in Columbus, OH. I spent $450 on the first 7K cartridge for it. I’m on my third cartridge now. I have found suppliers for around $150/cartridge. I don’t trust suppliers which sell cheaper. The Optra R+ died from one of those cheap cartridge vendors and their sh*t toner.

    Why do I bring this up?

    You get what you pay for. My parents have one of those wireless be-all-end-all Lexmark inkjet printers. The Linux machines have those discovery entries in the log eating up disk. They paid $200 for their printer and have spent more on ink than I have spent in toner over the last five. They have yet to put three boxes of paper through their printer, I rarely walk out of Office Max without a box in the cart.

    Quit being a cheap-basta. Buy a high end Lexmark POSTSCRIPT TONER PRINTER and learn what quality is.

  7. I’m not a cheap-basta, I say, don’t buy poorly made things that doesn’t work.

    If they want to ruin their brand by overengineering some badly made printer drivers instead of just going the easy way, then they’re allowed to do that. But do mind that when they call the cheapo printers “Lexmark” their entire brand will suffer from it.

    HP printers cost a bit more, but they work in Linux, — however, I don’t want them with the hplip irritation, they are also somewhat hurting their brand. But not as much, so I looked at a bit more expensive ones, and they work better; the HP business printers (LaserJet etc) eat postscript with no problem.

    What Lexmark is doing with their cheapo, bad printers is actually screaming «we hate you!». Whilst HP is more like «we’re stupid!». So I’d go for the second. :-)

  8. Hi, I agree with you that Lexmark could have done a better job, but anyway you can buy a more expensive prnter or you can choose a proprietary operating system with better support. It’s up to you what you choose. Anyway the demond is needed for the scanner not the printer itself. I spent some time with the same issue and found a potential solution: http://blog.ilz.it/?p=102
