    SPL-C Error in 19.04 w/ Samsung printer

    Hi all,

    I've got a slightly older Samsung C410W colour laser printer that has been working well with Ubuntu for years up until I upgraded in place from 18.09 to 19.04.

    Now no matter what, any attempt to print gets the following:

    Code:
    SPC-C ERROR - Insufficient Memory
    
    POSITION: 0x506 (1286)
    
    SYSTEM: eHeapPattern
    
    LINE: 6187584
    
    VERSION: SPL-C 5.59.02 02-24-2014
    I've removed and reinstalled the printer a couple of times and it sets up beautifully with the system every time... and then throws that same SPL-C error every time.

    I've done some searching on this forum and generally on Google and can't find anything coherent that looks like a solution. None of my hardware has changed anytime recently, and this printer was, as said, working just fine up to 18.09...

    Anyone?
    Trying really hard to not be a future-hating curmudgeon. Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper was the best desktop ever...

    I have spent 4 hours trying to figure this out. Has anyone found a solution?

    Seemingly not. You could try downloading the cups-filters, cups-filters-core-drivers and libcupsfilters1 packages for 18.04 and installing them one-by-one with

    Code:
    dpkg -i <package>

    Similar question as yours is posted here. Evidently, there is a problem with 19.04 and your printer. If possible, go back to 18.04 and forget about the short term releases.

    I have scoured the internet but have not found a solution, but I have discovered an excellent workaround. For those of you that have a Samsung Xpress SL-C410w or similar, your printer has built-in Google Cloud Printing and Samsung Cloud printing. I just registered my printer as a Google Cloud printer and then when I go to print it shows the option to print to my C410w via Google Cloud Print. No drivers required and no hassle. For this to work, you do need to be signed into your Google account through Ubuntu. Really hoping this helps someone.
