Discussion forum

Look for help in our forum for printers from Samsung.

Comments

1) A Linux driver is included on the CD that comes with the printer, or it can be downloaded from Samsung.

Get the Linux driver package (one package for all models from Samsung's web site.

Note: You cannot just use the PPD coming with Samsungs's driver package with CUPS/Ghostscript. You must also install the proprietary Samsung driver applications, as well as the PPD.

2) Or, you can try using the configuration for the Samsung ML-1710 printer, which several users have reported to work (see information page for that printer).

Please see the comments in the GDI driver section below re issues with landscape printing.

Consumables/Refills: toner cartridge (3,000 pages, ~$70 US)
