EDIT: You may always want to try uninstalling the old driver completely, then reinstalling, just to see if something within Samsung's set of files is conflicting. It's also possible, although unlikely, that the problem is apparmor; you can test this by using
to temporarily disable apparmor, then see if you can print. If it does not help, then you should restart apparmor withCode:sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor stop
If it does help, permanently switch off apparmor for cups usingCode:sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor start
Code:sudo aa-complain cups

I'm going to buy Samsung CLX-3160FN (color laser All-in-one).
Have you received a succes or non-success report for this model?
I was discussing this issue with another Ubuntu user and finally,
I have been directed to you
Thanks in advance and
I've run into some weird gui problem when trying to install the drivers. The gui window comes up, but will randomly lockup after hitting next. Occasionally it will launch a 2nd window, but that will be blank as well. I tried changing the /bin/sh to /bin/bash on the install.sh, but that does nothing. Any suggestions?
EDIT: Nevermind, I figured out how to force a text mode install via ctrl-alt-F1. My scx-4100 is working now. I have yet to try the scanner.

The "new" Dec 2007 drivers worked perfectly for me following tweedledee's clear instructions at the top of this thread using Ubuntu7.04 for our CLP-300 color laser printer.
The GUI installer set everything up, automatically found the printer and printed a test page. I then did a quick copy of a page using Xsane and all seemed well.
But I've two problems now. First, Xsane seems to have stopped working, I get the "scanning devices" popup window, it goes away and then nothing. Second and more important problem is printing pages it seems black text is blurry almost like its tryig to force bold print, color text is very sharp. Basicaly the black text is not "laser quality" more like an inferiour inkjet, while color parts of a web page look fine. A quick print of a color photo looked decent, and probably only needs a gamma adjustment to match what I get with our Dell color laser at work -- although nobody buys color lasers for their photo output.
Any settings I don't know about to address this? or did I get a defective printer?
Any idea as to why Xsane worked once and then stopped? I did uninstall the Epson printer it had been using after the initial test scan and exit of Xsane.

Your commitment to Freedom is measured by your tolerence for others doing things you disapprove.
Have just spent a little while trying to get the Samsung Installer Script to work with Ubuntu 7.10. Turns out that they dont anticipate the install directory having spaces in the file name. If you rename all folders in the path to single words (no space chars) it works fine for me. Either that or modify the script.
I just successfully setup my CLX-3160FN the only thing which caused some trouble when I used the unified driver installer was that the GUI was not visible... it would draw the frame, but it was blank.
I turned off beryl and re-ran the installer, and it worked great... I'm not sure why but some programs do this with beryl.
