    Here is my guide that works for me:

    1. Go to the CLP-310 page of Samsung and download ALL driver archives:

    - The Unified Linux Driver (UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz, version 3.00.28)
    - The smartpanel (smartpanel-2.00.34.tar.gz)
    - The printer setting utility (psu-2.00.12.tar.gz)

    2. Unpack all

    # sudo tar -xvzf UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz
    # sudo tar -xvzf smartpanel-2.00.34.tar.gz
    # sudo tar -xvzf psu-2.00.12.tar.gz

    3. Install

    # cd cdroot
    # sudo ./autorun

    Every time when the printer is plugged, Ubuntu will install the printer with a new name. This should make Ubuntu "easier" to use, but the effect is the opposite.

    4. Remove all CLP-310 printers

    - Go to System->Administration->Printing
    - Delete all CLP-310 printers

    5. Replug the printer

    Ubuntu presents a pop-up with a small "Configure" button

    6. Click on "Configure"

    7. Select the driver to use

    - Click on "Make and Model"
    - Select printer from database -> "Samsung" (click Next)
    - Select "Samsung CLP-310 Series (SPL-C)" (click Next)
    - Select "Use the new PPD" so all settings are renewed

    8. Print a test page and/or configure the printer

    My guide may work for other Samsung printers and versions as well. For me getting the psu and smartpanel archive may have been important to solve the problem as it is the only thing I remember I changed in my procedure.

    The smartpanel is hideous and annoying but it shows how much toner is left and if something is wrong, such as "paper mismatch" if you try to print A4 without configuring the printer


    PS: This tar/gzip problem is solved by Samsung. The new archives unpack as they should.
    Thank you very much.
    Perfect

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    I just updated to Ubuntu 8.10 and installed the new Unified Linux Driver (ver.3.00.37). I followed their instructions (including the Configurator) and installed thru 95% when a gif display window opened and installation stopped. Installation resumed when I closed that window. The printer does not work. System>Admin>Printing recognizes my ML-2010 but reports "Stopped - Filter "rasterospl2" for printer "ML-2010" not available: No such file or directory"

    I would appreciate any direction on how to rectify this situation.

    Thanks,

    Don

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    Possible solution, so stupid you've probably tried it already: I had "driver" problems with a ML-1510, but it turned out not to be the driver at all: try plugging the USB from the printer direct to the computer, or try a different direct USB connection.

    I have two printers running through a UB hub, and if the Samsung isn't in the FIRST outlet from the hub it says "...may not be connected" and usually won't print at all (sometimes gibberish!), but seems to pick up fine if it's the first. Being second doesn't seem to bother the other (HP Deskjet) printer.

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    I hope I am following the proper protocol by asking my question on this thread. If not, please let me know and I will make the needed correction.

    I am a very recent convert to Ubuntu. I am using version Ubuntu32 8:10

    I have a Samsung SCX-4100 printer. It is connected to the machine via a USB cable if that makes any difference. It is not recognized by Ubuntu.

    I downloaded the unified driver from the Samsung site. Saved it to the desktop.

    I extracted the driver to the desktop.....it is a file that says cdroot....to that point everything went well.

    Then I ran into a wall.....please keep in mind that I am beginning user...am not familiar with code....but I am able to follow a procedure.

    I was using terminal and typed in cd Desktop/cdroot/Linux./install.sh

    It didn't work


    I get a message that says no such file or directory exists.

    So, I changed things up a bit thinking that I didn't have the string written correctly on the command line and entered the following

    cd Desktop/cdroot/Linux

    This took me to

    Desktop/cdroot/Linux# which is correct I believe

    Then I entered ./install.sh

    This action resulted in the following

    [: 636: ==: unexpected operator

    Regardless of what I try with my limitied knowlege I keep getting the same thing.

    Do you have any suggestions......

    I was not able to copy and paste the command lines and the results from the terminal window (how to I do that BTW)...but I was careful to include all of the characters and the proper spacing or lack thereof.

    Thank you for any and all help

    Nearly there!

    Open a terminal (Accessories-Terminal)
    Change directory to /cdroot/Linux
    Run this command - sudo ./install.sh (the full stop and forward slash are needed). Enter your password.
    Follow the prompts, reboot and that's it.

    I have a CLX-3160FN

    Ive tried 3 drivers and none are good

    Do you know how to configure any driver in order to get better color print results?

    here is what I get from those drivers. Is this the quality you get?

    Yahs....thank you for the information. I think I did what you said, but ended up with the same unexpected operator message again. I am copying the commands and result below

    craig@benedictisanass:~$ /cdroot/Linux
    bash: /cdroot/Linux: No such file or directory
    craig@benedictisanass:~$ cd /cdroot/Linux
    bash: cd: /cdroot/Linux: No such file or directory

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    I too have a scx-4100 and it works well both in 8.04 and 8.10, it is connected by usb. I am not familiar with the error message, so let's try again, I have re-read your original post and I noticed you said Ubuntu 8.10 doesn't recognise the printer.
    Ubuntu recognises my printer but only installs a generic printer, so you have to download the Samsung Unified Driver to get everything working properly.
    If you open a terminal and type lsusb you should see a reference to Samsung.

    This is what I get when I type lsusb

    Bus 005 Device 005: ID 0424:223a Standard Microsystems Corp. 8-in-1 Card Reader
    Bus 005 Device 004: ID 05e3:0606 Genesys Logic, Inc. D-Link DUB-H4 USB 2.0 Hub
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04e8:3413 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 045e:0040 Microsoft Corp. Wheel Mouse Optical
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    So as long as your printer is switched on and plugged in Ubuntu will (should) find it.
    I suggest you first check the lsusb command to see what you get.

    One other point, as you say you're pretty new to Ubuntu.
    When sudo asks for your password, have you entered your password and then completed a command.
    For instance if you wanted to edit the boot loader you would type the command sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    You would then be prompted for your password and after you have entered it, the file menu.lst will appear on your screen. (Just exit without making any changes)
    Just wondering if the error message is generated in response to your password or in response to the ./install.sh command.
    Let me know how you get on.

    Yahs....I typed the lsusb command into a terminal and got the following. It doen't look like what you have

    lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    I down loaded the unified driver to the desktop and was able to extract the driver for the printer to the desktop...it in in a folder that says croot on the desktop. I have looked in it an found it. I just can't get the system to run the install....it is resulting in the unexpected user problem...

    The printer is on and it is connected to the machine via a USB cable. It all worked great until....I installed Ubuntu. It still works when my spousal unit plugs the printer into her laptop, with that viral code from the evil empire up in Redmond Washington as an operating system, using the same cable. She is currently peeved with me about my change to Ubuntu and will not consider the very positive aspects of Linux in general until I am able to get her printer up and running on this system.

    I typed the sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst in and a menu list poped up in a separate window...I am pasting what came up below

    menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)

    Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver

    Looking at your results for lsusb, - this means you don't have anything plugged into any USB ports?

    The sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst command was just to check that your password is correct and active. The actual file is only really needed if you dual boot.

    The fact that lsusb didn't show your printer is like Windows not recognising a piece of hardware, so trying to install software for that particular item isn't much use.

    How about booting from a live Ubuntu Cd and then checking System, Administartion, Printing to see if your Samsung appears? (Printer plugged in and switched on).
