Also my computer will see the printer through the USB drive witch is good but when it prints it comes out with this error message...
i have the driver on the disk should i reinstall or do something else?
as i said i am new to Linux
If I open the Configurator it gives out segmentation fault when I try to access scanner properties. However it works fine with gksu(and sudo as well) in front of the command. I changed it in the menu and now I am asked for the password, which is much better than it was before.Code:sudo chmod -s /opt/Samsung/mfp/bin/Configurator
You can do a ls -alh /usr/lib/libmfp.so* and post here the result?
I know it's a silly thing, but ldconfig points links to last version of any library
If libmfp.so points to the original libmfp.so.1.0.1 renamed by you instead of patched version from Jacobo Tarrio, you have to repoint links to right version and move the original version of libmfp.so.1.0.1 to *another directory* (for example, your home directory) and leave in /usr/lib only the patched version.
Post here if works. If not work, you can undo moving back the original libmfp.so.1.0.1 renamed by you to /usr/lib.

After (I think when trying to repoint libmfp.so I deleted it how do I get it back? It showed up as a "broken link" after I moved the .backup file so I figured it was a symlink and safe to delete, but now I don't what to link to create a new one):Code:brian@Apollo:/usr/lib$ ls -alh /usr/lib/libmfp.so* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 2008-04-26 23:17 /usr/lib/libmfp.so -> libmfp.so.1.0.1.backup lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-04-12 14:27 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1 -> libmfp.so.1.0.1 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52K 2008-04-26 23:47 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1.0.1 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52K 2008-04-26 22:03 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1.0.1.backup
Code:brian@Apollo:/usr/lib$ ls -alh /usr/lib/libmfp.so* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-04-12 14:27 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1 -> libmfp.so.1.0.1 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52K 2008-04-26 23:47 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1.0.1
Nevermind I got it. It works now. Good ol trash bin in "sudo nautilus."
that got libmfp.so back but it still pointed to my .backup file.
Then as per Jacobo's directions, I reinstalled all the xsane stuff and that got it to repoint it correctly.
and now xsane works and so far, has stuck. Thanks tayroni.Code:brian@Apollo:/usr/lib$ ls -alh /usr/lib/libmfp.so* lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-04-28 23:55 /usr/lib/libmfp.so -> libmfp.so.1.0.1 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 2008-04-12 14:27 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1 -> libmfp.so.1.0.1 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 52K 2008-04-28 23:46 /usr/lib/libmfp.so.1.0.1

I have just bought a new CLP-600N (unwisely maybe - to replace CLP-550N which was getting too expensive to maintain) to run on a home network. It seems to work fine with XP and standard drivers. On my Ubuntu PC I installed the standard driver (foo2qpdl). I had trouble with multipage colour documents - after 2-3 pages the text changes from black to pale blue, red, yellow with some lines across the page. It goes OK for some pages and then repeats the colour corruption.
After reading this thread I downloaded the Samsung Unified Printer Driver and installed as per instructed with no difficulty. The driver seem to be the same and I am getting the same corruption printing from Open Office ofr Firefox. If I set the printer to print in monochrome everything seems OK. nb. The same document prints perfectly using Open Office 2.4 on XP.
I am running on 8.04 (just upgraded), printer is on 192.168.10.101.
Is this a known problem or could it be hardware ?
(After a further experiment with a 26 page colour test document it seem that with Linux the blue component is not always being printed.)
I've recently discovered that switching to Debian made the 550 work perfectly! It turns out that CUPS and the Gnome (and possibly KDE) printing interfaces have been customized in Ubuntu; although they add benefits to the user interface (e.g., in Debian with default Gnome interface it is not possible to change the default printer name when installing), something apparently also causes a breakdown in communication with certain Samsung printers - specifically the CLP series. Unfortunately, that means your only real choice with Ubuntu is to keep trying related drivers (and generic postscript) until you find one that works. Or switch to another distro, which may be overkill for the printer alone (I did it because Hardy nearly fried - literally - one of my computers).
