Title: [SOLVED][HOW TO] Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver in VectorLinux\Slackware
Post by: bruraschi on May 27, 2017, 06:57:44 am
Pay attention because these steps are not exhaustive and may not work for your particular configuration! One of my printer is a Samsung ML-1710, which do not work by default driver bundled with CUPS, although the ML-1750 and ML-1650 is supported natively by CUPS (also is in list), choosing them at driver selection results in a not-work-at-all, the driver that pilot the ML-1710 is different. So official Samsung driver is mandatory!

The official installer won't work properly under Vector Linux because of permission, but runs long enough to achieve the injection of the new driver in the CUPS library, afterward let it crash without worrying about it (closing\terminating\killing all other firefox and terminal window that popups) (step 4)!


Steps to install the printer:

My printer is shared from another PC that run WinXP, so I select Windows Printer via SAMBA, then I put the path (go in WinXP machine and edit the shared printer name and make it with no space or - or strange symbol, only AZaz09 and underscore _ ). In my case smb://192.168.1.3/Samsung_ML_1710

Notice that SamsungConfigurator on desktop now list your printer too.
