User comment:

Samsung also has a driver here which I didn't try yet.

A report on using the Samsung driver and installing this printer on Slackware.

http://www.linuxpackages.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15246

It works perfectly fine, although there is a peculiar 'error' logging in /var/log/cups/error_log - 'media tray empty!' after every print job, but it doesn't seem to affect the printer (or CUPS) at all.

The 'media try empty' error message is a bug in CUPS, and is fixed from:

CHANGES IN CUPS V1.1.21rc1 - The USB backend incorrectly reported "media tray empty" (STR #660)
===

My experience on Gentoo: Samsung offers an tar.gz package, which contains a GUI installer. The installation is quick and flawlessly. You can use CUPS or LPRng as backend. The installer also offers to install a printer management GUI and to integrate that with KDE/Gnome. (This GUI seems to be able to manage other CUPS printers, too; I didn't try that, however.)

The driver package also contains a set of .ppd files among which is one for the ML-1610, appearently for PS Level 3.

As the installation went smooth and the printer works fine, I'm setting the status to "Perfectly".

Consumables/Refills: Single toner cartridge / 2,000 pages (ships with 1,000-page starter toner cartridge)

Using Ubuntu it seems to work when choosing the ML-1510 printer in CUPS, but in OOo sometimes the left & top margins aren't right.

Comment on the previous statement: There's no need to use the driver for the ML-1510, as Samsung offers an own driver for the ML-1610.
This driver is free software.
