Creating a configuration .ldc file (Example)
This example will use the driver features "Print In Black and White" and "Duplex".
Launch the Lexmark Printer Driver Configuration Utility (LPDCU).
Windows default location: Start > Programs > Lexmark > LPDCU.
Under the Quality/Paper tab, place a checkmark next Print In Black and White, and then Save.
Go to the Configuration Options tab, place a checkmark next to Duplexer, and then select Save.
Go to the Layout tab, and under Duplex, set the Duplex Setting to Both Sides and set the Duplex Type to Long Edge.
Select File and Save to save your configuration (*.ldc) settings file.
Note: Select a directory and filename that makes identification easier when you need to retrieve and apply the file; i.e., F:\\FrontOffice\Dplxclr.ldc.
If not already open, launch the Lexmark Printer Driver Configuration Utility (LPDCU).From the menu bar, select File and Open, browse to the location of the .ldc file, select it, and click on an additional Open.
Note: This will load the configuration file into the LPDCU for a visual identification of the configured driver settings.
Click on File > Apply to initiate a search for local print queues.
Find additional information about available LPDCU settings in the application's built-in Help.
