Sample of APS-Filter printcap file (ESP Ghostscript must be installed, as it provides the "gdi"/"samsunggdi" driver):

 
# APS1_BEGIN:printer1 
# - don't delete start label for apsfilter printer1 
# - no other printer defines between BEGIN and END LABEL 
lp|samsunggdi;r=600x600;q=medium;c=gray;p=a4;m=auto:\ 
    :lp=/dev/usb/lp0:\ 
    :if=/etc/apsfilter/basedir/bin/apsfilter:\ 
    :sd=/var/spool/lpd/lp:\ 
    :lf=/var/spool/lpd/lp/log:\ 
    :af=/var/spool/lpd/lp/acct:\ 
    :mx#0:\ 
    :sh: 
# APS1_END - don't delete this 
Sample of SETUP.cfg file from apsfilter:


PRINTER='samsunggdi' 
RESOLUTION='600x600' 
COLOR='gray' 
PAPER='a4' 
METHOD='auto' 
QUALITY='medium' 
INTERFACE='parallel' 
DEVICE='/dev/usb/lp0'

Main hack is to manualy seting PRINTER='samsunggdi' default not exist in menu from SETUP script of apsfiler.And rerun setup script to create printcap file.

Postscript  (driver home page)
 
This printer has a DIMM expansion slot which can take a POSTSCRIPT 3 Emulator ROM. The ROM can be purchased online relatively cheaply (~65 Euro 18.08.2006). Its part number is ML-00PD. An example source www.csv.de.

Once the module is installed the postscript drivers can be used.

The printer's memory can also be upgraded up to 144MB. This is also a DIMM module. The Samsung branded memory is rather expensive (500+ euro), a generic memory does the same job with out trouble. A 128MB generic memory module can be found for around ~65 Euro (10.04.2006) from for example best-electronics on ebay.de
This driver is free software.
