    Exclamation Printer Samsung ML 1865 doesn't work

    I'm running Ubuntu 10.10. All works fine, except a printer which I bought today - Samsung ML 1865 with all Mac and Linux support. Which I already doubt. I successfully installed a needed driver, which was downloaded from samsung.com, and I can see in System/Preferences/Printing my printer with green check on it. Which I supposed to be a good sign. But every time I inquire to print something I have then a printed list with the following statement:
    Internal Error - please use the proper driver.

    Position : 0x0 (0)
    system : h6fw_5.49/xl_op
    Line: 180
    Version : SPL 5.49 10-20-2010

    I rebooted my computer then and ran windows 7. On startup I installed a driver for the printer and try to print ubuntu.com homepage. And it worked.
    So I rebooted back on my ubuntu and every time it's printing something I see only an internal error on the blank white paper.

    Me too
    " internal error -Please use proper driver"
    I think I haven't installed "unified printed driver" properly.
    It thinks I have ML-1860.
    Cant remove "unified printed driver" either.
    Says I need Super User -
    Doesnt allow mw to put in SUDO ???
    I think I'm doing something wrong.
    Hellllllllppppppppppp.
    I've fallen and I can't use SUDO properly.

    Just bought one of these nifty laser printers and struggled like mad to get it to work until I sussed how to do it and it was simplicity itself!

    Process....

    Add to repositories under update manager...

    "deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra" without the quote marks!

    Then get the apt-key

    Refresh your repository listings

    Go to synaptic and do search for... samsungmfp

    Install samsungmfp-data & samsungmfp-driver

    Plug in, turn on samsung laser, 'Add Printer' and presto should work!!

    More info at http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/

    Very important: you must have completely removed all prior installations of the Unified Linux Driver before following next steps!

    1. Alt+F2
    2. paste /etc/apt/sources.list
    3. then add to repositories: deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra
    4. Open terminal
    5. sudo -s (it will ask for your password - type it)
    6. after becoming root paste into your terminal window:
    wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
    7. Go to http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg
    8. Save the file\page as suldr.gpg in your home derictory
    8. Go back to the terminal and paste:
    sudo apt-key add suldr.gpg
    9. To refresh everything, paste into your terminal:
    sudo apt-get update
    10. Then go to System/Administration/Printing and make sure you have you ML-1865 shown in it, if not - add it and finally start to use it properly.

    Almost perfect instructions, EasyNow - here's how I did it.

    1. Opened "Software Sources" through Unity
    2. Selected the 'Other Software' tab, clicked 'Add...' then pasted in deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra
    3. Hit ctrl + alt + t for terminal then ran sudo wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add - (it asked me for my password for sudo, of course)
    4. Ran sudo apt-get update to load the new source into the computer
    5. Opened the Software Centre from unity, searched for samsung config and installed Samsung Unified Driver Configurator (QT4 interface), along with the driver.
    6. Searched for Samsung in unity and ran the configurator. I hit refresh, then followed the steps to add the printer.

    Although the configurator application thinks that the printer is a 'Samsung ML-1860 series', it appears to work perfectly.

    Re: Printer Samsung ML 1865 doesn't work

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 with the classic Gnome desktop and the above help didn't work for me.
    What I ended up doing was (all through the terminal):

    1. Using the terminal add the correct software source
    Code:
    sudo bash -c 'echo "deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
    2. Add the key:
    Code:
    wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
    3. Update the software sources
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    4. Look for what driver number your printer needs on this page:
    http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/supported.html

    5. Install the driver in a terminal
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install suld-driver-4.00.35
    (replace the last number with the driver you need and found in 4)

    Now installing the printer through the normal 'add printer' dialog works fine.
