i want to add my printer in CUPS, i chose the brand and than the model name, i take the CLP-320 series (SPL-C). Than cups ask of i whant to take the new PPD settings whit it, or use the old and the new one's togther. i chose want i want, and than i want to click on apply to go further... but it do nothing, the apply button is not click a bell
please help me, ist the finally step to have a color printer working.
Even if you enable it, it may not work, but then again it might since the printer does support the mode.
Thanks for this great topic. It saved me a lot of time. There is only one thing that doesn't work with the SCX-4623F. I can print and scan from my PC, but is it also possible to scan from the scanner to the PC? At this moment the scanner gives the error that there is no PC available. I tried some configuration with samba, but I can't get it work. Hopefully someone here can help me or can tell me that this is not possible.
I've been using Linux for years (since FC1) and have always floated between Windows and Linux....most falling back on Windows when works requires it....but never bothered with getting all sudo bashing in the CLI. I like my computing to just work and Linux really is getting there...just.
BTW ...tried Unity. Don't like it so went back to the old main stay Gnome with Mint Maya
FYI for anyone still using this thread instead of the SULDR website: I have made major changes to the repository that render all instructions in this thread obselete. I no longer plan to read or reply to any posts in this thread; use the new forums instead.
Grateful. Still dubious about buying
for upcoming Ubuntu 13.04 uprade. But grateful for ubuntu in Ubuntu. Felicitations.
I thought I'd post on here as well as the suld forum since this is still active & I'm using Ubuntu. I've tried to print a test page & a page using LibreOffice Writer. Ubuntu seemed to send the pages to the printer but nothing happened. I've tried both suld-driver-4.00.35 & suld-driver-4.00.36 (recommended driver versions on the list of supported printers) with the same lack of success. Synaptic installed suld-driver-common-1 & suld-driver-network-2 packages when I selected the driver.
I have the printer connected by ethernet cable to my router. I've made the router give the printer (i.e. its MAC address of 00:15:992:24:5B with DeviceName of SamsungPrintergives it a static ip address of 192.168.1.20 on my LAN. When I add the printer, it sees the printer as SamsungSCX-472X (SEC001599D2245B, 192.168.1.20). I'd expect it to be SamsungPrinter rather than SEC001599D2245B but that shouldn't make any difference? I'm able to select either of: AppSocket/JetDirect network printer via DNS-SD, LPD network printer via DNS-SD, IPP network printer via DNS-SD. I've tried them all (they all lead to automatic driver installation) with the same lack of success when printing is attempted: also, the printer is shown with a no entry symbol presumably implying it cannot be found.
With my previous Brother printer, this DNS-SD method did not work due to a bug in Ubuntu. So I tried the workaround, which is to use the option of 'Find network printer' supplying a Device URI of 192.168.1.20:631. This then asks me to Choose Driver with options of Select printer from database, Provide PPD file, Search for a printer driver to download. I selected the first option followed by Samsung followed by 472x printer but it then gave me a popup with title of "CUPS Server Error" with details of "There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-not-possible'".
I've just deleted the printer from Ubuntu's Printer list & installed the Linux Unified Printer Driver as per the instructions given by Samsung and it worked fine from the PC it's attached to by USB. However, when I try to install it on another PC (i.e. both PC's are linked through my router), I add the printer by using ipp with a URI of ipp://192.168.1.11:631/printer (this being the same method that I used for an existing HP inkjet printer that I attached to the 2nd PC by USB & then installed it to the 1st PC) but it fails with the status shown as "Stopped - The printer URI is incorrect or no longer exists.".
I want the Samsung printer to be accessible by both PCs. I'm at a loss what to do next.
