SuSE 9 & Samsung ML-1430


Anyone had luck using this printer with SuSE 9?

Samsung software installs fine as does the latest version of cups. Setting up cup admin was done, connecting to cups occuring. When a test page is sent to the print the 'data' light on the printer will blink but the data isn't printed.

Beyond googling around - is there anything obvious I need to check? This printer worked fine under SuSE 8.2.

Thanks in advance for any help.

This is in the suse database

Some Samsung printers are GDI printers. Normally such printers are not supported by Linux. Find information regarding GDI printers in your manual or in the support database article "GDI printer", available online at http://sdb.suse.de/sdb/en/html/ke_printer-gdi.html For most Samsung GDI printers there is some support by SuSE Linux. But as GDI printer support is always problematic it may not work. There are printer drivers available directly from Samsung. Find information regarding this drivers at http://samsungelectronics.com/printer/index.html PPD files are included in the driver tarball. But you can also find PPD files used for Windows in the same URL.

Could you please let me know if you got it to work or find some kind of workaround ?
I have a basically the same problem. The native driver supplied by Samsung works fine with Mandrake 8.1, but when I updated to Mandrake 9.2 it didn't work anymore. I think the driver was built against an older version of glib and does not work with newer distributions :-(

The Samsung 1430 seems to work fine with Cups using the Samsung 1200 driver (postscript + GDI). I don't know about SuSE, but it works fine with Mandrake 9.2 (and I will be testing it soon with Fedora 1).

using the ml-1210 GDI driver enabled the Samsung ML-1430 printer to work on SuSE 9 perfectly!
