    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    Dear tweedledee,

    Thanks a lot for the howto, it worked for my network printer,

    Samsung SCX-4521F

    Additional comments:
    during the Unified Linux Driver Installer gui one should select "manual select", then click on lpd:// (in the Network field) and write the IP address of the printer after ldp://
    For the driver one should select Samsung SCX-4x21 Series

    Thanks again

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    tweedledee, Thank You!! Thank you for debugging Samsung's code and sharing it.

    btw, my ML-2571n installed fine with their installer once YOU fixed it.

    btw2, Samsung's web site doesn't work with Firefox (can't see some things, can't download at all), so I had to install IEs4Linux. Warning: installing IEs4Linux will pollute your machine with downloads from the evil empire M$. Samsung's website doesn't work great with IEs3Linux but at least I was able to download.

    Glad it worked.

    Firefox should work with the Samsung website - provided you have Flash installed and Javascript enabled. Their site suffers from the same usability problem of many corporate sites - if you don't enable every advanced feature, nothing works.

    I have done all points with success, but my printer still doesn't work.
    When I print it goes always on pause, and nothing appens..

    Do you know what it could be?

    ps. this printer is on a network

    Thanks,

    I had similar problems trying to get my new Samsung ML-2510 to work. It also is connected to a print server. I downloaded and installed the latest Samsung drivers. I tried a number of forums and CUPS sites without success. The printer would show as ready but jobs would show as stopped and I could not resume them.

    I stumbled upon a solution using the CUPS web interface which is available from your browser at http://localhost:631/admin

    My printers were listed but the ML-2510 showed a message saying that the file rastertosamsungspl was unavailable due to a permissions problem. I checked two directories: /usr/lib/cups/filter and /etc/cups/ppd

    In /etc/cups/ppd I noticed the following:
    /etc/cups/ppd # ls -l

    -rw-r--r-- 1 cupsys lpadmin 17240 2005-12-04 18:37 DeskJet-692C.ppd
    -rw-r--r-- 1 cupsys lp 10681 2007-03-22 20:49 ML-2510-Series.ppd

    I issued the following command:
    chgrp lpadmin ML-2510-Series.ppd

    File details should now look like this:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 cupsys lpadmin 17240 2005-12-04 18:37 DeskJet-692C.ppd
    -rw-r--r-- 1 cupsys lpadmin 10681 2007-03-22 20:49 ML-2510-Series.ppd

    In /usr/lib/cups/filter I noticed the following:
    /usr/lib/cups/filter # ls -l

    File ownerships and permissions were wrong for the samsung raster files.

    I issued the following commands:

    /usr/lib/cups/filter # chown root: rastertosamsung*
    chmod a+x rastertosamsung*

    Details for the affected files should now look like this:

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 158306 2006-07-24 03:29 rastertosamsungpcl
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 324826 2006-07-24 03:29 rastertosamsungspl
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 406452 2006-07-24 03:29 rastertosamsungsplc

    I must have missed a step when installing the Samsung drivers. Hopefully this helps with your problem.

    I don't believe so - all my corresponding files for the CLP show up as you indicated before making the ownership changes, so apparently that's just how the installer works. I'm not sure why you needed to change them to get it to work for your printer, but I'll note it in the original post.

    I forgot to mention that I also did the permissions and ownership changes on the file pscms

    I'm guessing that the execute permissions were more important than the file ownership, but I just thought that everything should look consistant.

    Hm - I had missed that you changed the permissions as well (though it's rather clear in your message). You are correct in that those files should have execute permissions, that was likely your problem. Yet another quirk of the installer, I guess. Thanks for posting the fix.

    Thumbs up Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    Printer Samsung ML-2510/XEU

    first off samsung don't admit to this variant however the couple of variants they did list seem to use the same driver.
    Second yes Samsungs website seems IE Centric I had to download the driver with IE in windows

    The driver file is 20070129102958984_UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz

    I downloaded it directly to my ubuntu desktop (you can get an ext3 driver for XP)
    and entered the following instructions in a bash terminal.

    tar xzf 20070129102958984_UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz
    cd cdroot
    sudo su
    ./autorun

    This brought up the graphical installer followed the instructions on screen.
    Printer works fine
    I think the driver version is 2.00.92 or similar (the version on the cd was 2.00.62 and I got nowhere). I haven't tried network printing yet or seen a way to adjust the printer quality I have tried a couple of Jpegs and the quality was quite acceptable and very fast.
    This was on ubuntu Dapper connected via usb. (no parallel port on my laptop)

    hope this helps someone else out the printer is currently available at PCWorld for £59.99
    (if they have any in stock) Toners supposed to be good for 1000 pages the real toner cartridge which costs about the same as the printer is good for 3000 pages.

    Has anyone tried to install Samsung's Unified Printer Driver in Ubuntu 7.04 beta with any success?

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    I've followed your suggestions and the /bin/sh -> /bin/bash did get the installer to fire. Thanks.

    Now I cannot seem to get the scanner detected properly. Printer prints test page fine, so I think that the print side is OK.

    I found

    sane-find-scanner

    DID find the scanner, both on a Compaq Presario 1540 (Dapper 6.06) and on an Acer 5050 (Edgy 6.10). But

    scanimage -L

    says "no scanners identified".

    Anyone have suggestions?

    I'll also post on another thread on this subject. Apologies for that, but this material seems scattered about.
