Re: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver
I just installed the July 20 unified driver. On Ubuntu Feisty (32-bit)
My printer is a CLP-300N model and is connected to network only (not using the USB connection that is also on the printer).
Following this guide I changed permission on the install.sh file and then edited the first line changing /bin/sh to /bin/bash.
Then I used the ./autorun and install went as expected.
I do have some notes here related to teh network printer (as opposed to a directly connected printer)
At the printer select screen during driver install, no printers are detected since the local printer radio button is ticked. I choose the network printer radio button and then select Browse for Printers. Installer finds my CLP300N on the network and presents it for installation.
After install completes I go to (in Gnome) System -> Administration -> Printing and the printer is already in there. I don't have to do anything further. The connection properties show it as being connected using IPP://-*IP_address_of_printer*- so IPP printing appears to be working fine here.
I have also made this printer available to my wife's laptop which is running WinXP. No issues.
And since I have the printer set as a static IP I can easily log on to it using a web browser by using it's IP address. Lots of settings available in that interface as well.
My next quest is the SmartPanel application. It just plain didn't work and I see there is a new build for Linux. The previous build would ONLY work and show ink levels if you had the printer connected via USB. The Windows version of SmartPanel can see ink levels over the network. If the new SmartPanel build sees ink levels on a network-connected printer, then I will be one happy camper.
