Installing DEB or RPM printer drivers on ArchLinux running on Pogoplug

I've managed to get Archlinux running on my ARM6 Pogoplug. I got the timemachine server up and running, and I'm moving on to a CUPS server. I can't find any linux drivers in the Gutenprint repository, but it appears that Lexmark has Linux driver downloads for my printer: http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale … age=null#1

That's great, except a) they only have Debian or RPM based packages, and b) from the CUPS web administration, it's asking for a "PPD" file. I've tried downloading both drivers to my Pogoplug and running the install scripts, but both fail, saying:

Operating system: linux
CPU Arch: armv6l
Warning: No installer for "armv6l" found, defaulting to x86...
./startupinstaller.sh: line 29: bin/linux/x86/libc.so.6/lzma-decode: cannot execute binary file
./startupinstaller.sh: line 29: bin/linux/x86/libc.so.6/lzma-decode: cannot execute binary file
./startupinstaller.sh: line 29: bin/linux/x86/libc.so.6/lzma-decode: cannot execute binary file
./startupinstaller.sh: line 29: bin/linux/x86/libc.so.6/lzma-decode: cannot execute binary file
Error: Couldn't find any suitable frontend for your system

Does anyone have any advice? I'm just struggling along trying not to break things smile

If you're asking about Arch on ARM stuff, you should go to http://archlinuxarm.org/

Ooops. Got confused by my URLs smile
But, were I not to be running on an ARM, how would I go about transforming a Debian or RPM package into something I could use properly?
