samsung clp printer help


Hello all, I have just installed Suse 10.3 having never used Linux before. I really like the speed at which it works and all the options available, compared to win xp. I am having trouble configuring my new printer, Samsung clp 300, which I bought for its compatibility with linux. However I cannot get it to work, it shows up in the the linux Y.A.S.T. section as there, but unconfigured. When I try to configure it it seems o.k. but does not work. I have tried quite a few links but I am getting no where at all, and being a 65 year old mechanic, with 2 weeks to go before retirement, you may notice that I am not a geek? when it comes to computing.I would really appreciate a bit of advice on this matter, many thanks, kind regards.Bob.

Bob I can only give you general advice, open YaST and go to "software management" and make sure the program cups is installed and if so check and see if your printer is listed. If not you may need to upgrade your cups. I started linux at the approximate time of my retirement and it has provided me with a lot of entertainment (and frustration). I was an automotive technician (mechanic).

OpenPrinting.org website may help.. Samsung also has proprietary drivers available on their website.

Hello, I have downloaded the file? in some sort of code, that needs transferring to somewhere? Does anyone know where it should go to, as I have mentioned I know nothing about such matters. Many thanks for your time, kind regards, Bob.

Bob about half way down this page it lists instructions for compiling the driver and installing it. These commands are done in terminal (Konsole) as root.

Hello, to all the gentlemen who have been helping me with the Suse/Samsung problem. I have decided to put Suse on hold for a while, until I am more capable of solving the software problem. I have however downloaded "Puppy" linux to a spare computor with a reformatted hard drive, now dedicated to Linux only. I think I may have a lttle more success with this version, as I already have the internet wireless connection up and running fine. I am still having problems with the Samsung printer, but I shall persevere with the task of making it work. It has been recognised by the Cups programme, I only have to sort out the driver side, which I shall download in the morning. Once again I would like to thank you all for the kind assistance and patience shown to me, many thanks, kind regards,Bob.

Bob I still have the same problems to work out as you do when compiling drivers. It is nice to have a "second computer" to learn on. I keeps you from being in a bind trying to keep everything working and having to do it now. I hope you will come back and post when you do get the printer set up in linux and working properly.

Hello Larry, When I have the printer up and running, I will post the How To's on here, for all to share. By the way the Raylink wireless, PCI setup,with the RT 65 chipset, will work in Puppy Linux 'out of the box no problems'. (it may help someone out). Well its once more to the breech again, Larry I will keep you informed, many thanks, kind regards to you all, Bob.
