Red face Samsung printer ML-2150 and CLP-500 - drivers for Linux ubuntu 9.04


I've had Linux Ub. 8.04 installed on two of my tree desktops. I used both my printers on them via printservers. I recently upgraded to Linux ub. 8.04 and have never been able to use the printers from these computers since. It seems to be a driver problem, but I am not sure. Can anyone help, please!

"tree" desktops ? Maybe you're of Irish descent ?
OK. It's "Three"

What "printservers" ?
Would you be using cups perhaps ?

Well, you have just said that you are running 8.04, so just how did you "upgrade" it to 8.04?

We need more details. A careful description of what your set-up is and what is, or is not, working, along with the details of the distros you are running on each would help us help you.

Probably need to re-install the Samsung drivers since the CLP-500 doesn't speak a standard printer language..

The other printer however should work fine with CUPS, LPR, Gutenprint, and the appropriate .ppd file.
