driver for Samsung SF-4700 printer needed


I have ubuntu linux installed on a dual boot with wxp. I can't seem to locate a driver for my Samsung SF-4700 multi function printer/scanner/fax. I've searched extensively. Samsung sites haven't revealed anything useful. Can anyone help with a driver or a work around?

Welcome to LQ!

Sorry to bring you the bad news, but in openprinting.org this printer is listed as Windows GDI printer.

Surf around at openprinting.org, they have a list of co-operative hardware manufacturers.

Edit: found it http://www.linuxfoundation.org/en/Op...PrinterVendors
