Yes, the supplied Samsung install disc now seems  primarily for Windows

Did yours include  a linux install (.sh) file ?

If not,  or  :(  after the S/S install, it complains (missing rastertosamsungspl/c)

>  You downloaded the unified driver, try extracting PPD files
Sometimes, (if lucky) an alternate (I.E. earlier) printer ppd works

Cups's own  database has limited  printer drivers

Many find it better to run cups manually, vs Distro GUI tools

(Type in browser location bar_)   localhost:631

One work around solution  is to use deprecated lpr (along with Foomatic)

I done it :DDD
I've found the ppd file for my printer on openprintig.org and I configured the printer over CUPS.
Here is the file http://www.fileserve.com/file/hz5vpdn if someone needs this too.
Thanks rm-r for the help.

Nice to hear  ~ congrats &  Thank  YOU for uploading 

NTIM _ I bought the scx 3200 because it was cheaper ($70Cdn) than ML1740 toner replacement
(Still kicking myself - that newer model was some sweet bargain)

The only "dumb" question - is the one not asked
Or did you mean  :D  dump_this_on_us - Hey... not to fret ~ problems should  be  viewed as just another  interesting challenge

 EDIT > cleaning up odds'n ends:
Please edit post  header as SOLVED
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From above, it was unclear as to what was meant by  "U..DRIVER"
 (=  An odd  description for Samsung Unified driver ?)

See also >   (SpliX) Samsung Printer Language drivers for CUPS

When Unified driver gets installed - an UN-installer is  created 

Now WTH was meant by  " DDD" (device driver download  ?_

OFFICIALY Linux DDD - is an IDEwrapper:  Data  Display De-bugger,   for code traces
