printer driver error

i am having trouble finding the right driver for my samsung Xpress M3015DW, the list provided in cups seems to not have the printer listed and every driver i can get to half way work is giving me a strange error that somehow messes with the scaling of the project. the other error i'm getting is a SPL error with the code 11-1113. i'm finding people who say it could be the cable but i have tried 2, admittedly, very similar brandless cables with the exact same results.

What is the precise wording of the error messages and the precise conditions under which they appear?

Have a look at the Linux printer drivers offered here...

Chose Linux for your distro and download/install the tarball package, then configure CUPS again.
