    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    I think you're right about that, I also tried connecting the scanner directly via USB and it didn't work, so because it's not working over USB I can't really test the network fix. If it worked just...
  2. [all variants] Re: Great experience with Samsung SCX-4826 laser MFP

    Re: Printer Guide - Jun '09

    Sorry this is a bit late, but I had almost the exact same requirements and ended up with the Samsung SCX-4826FN. I found it on Amazon for a steal at $249 shipped.

  7. [all variants] Great experience with Samsung SCX-4826 laser MFP

    UPDATE: I take back my recommendation of Samsung. DO NOT BUY ONE OF THEIR PRINTERS!! Their device no longer works fully under 10.04 or later and they have not / will not update their proprietary...
  8. [ubuntu] Re: Firefox scrolling sucks in Google Reader using ubuntu 9.10
