    Samsung ML-1665 drivers

    I've just bought a Samsung ML-1665 laser printer, and I cannot get it to work with Ubuntu 10.10. None of the drivers that Ubuntu suggests work and the driver from Samsung will not install for me. Thanks in advance.

    I may have found an answer for you:

    Read that page and follow the directions. It's a repository that will have your driver show up like any other program in Ubuntu Software Center for easy install.

    Cheers for the tip, but I have managed to coax the driver from Samsung into working. For anyone else who's interested, you can run it by typing

    Code:
     sudo sh [type directory here]

    Repository is a much better option because it's much cleaner. If you ever need to remove the drivers, you just remove them like any other program. Plus the author cleaned them up a bit (Samsung just made a big mess with the files).

    Once you add the repository, just install the driver. Its the "program" called "samsungmfg-driver". Now all you have to do is plug the printer in. Ubuntu automatically sets it up for you.
