This version is now available.

Announcements / Driver version 1.00.39
« on: May 12, 2018, 21:12:14 »
The latest driver version is now available for direct download and via the repository.  It updates support for numerous printers and adds support for a few newer models.  This is the first driver release since HP completed acquisition of the Samsung printer line, but appears to have been developed by Samsung well before then (i.e., even though it is only recently released, the actual files are already about 18 months old).

Yes, probably in a week or two.  I don't know when that version actually posted, but it certainly was not the Sep 1 2017 that HP is claiming.  My best estimate is that it actually appeared in March, and it has been a couple of month since I had time to check for an update.

At a glance, it appears to be at most a minor change with a few ppd updates.

From your distribution, I assume you are trying to install on a Raspberry Pi.  That version of ARM hardware is not supported by the driver.  The available ARM packages are for much older hardware, and Samsung never updated for the newer chips.

I don't know if that will change now that HP owns everything, but so far there has been no sign of updating the drivers.

Don't use any of the files from this thread.  The most current versions are those packaged through the repository, and should be installed that way.

If you do not see Printers or Printing, you can start a terminal and enter system-config-printer to start the interface.  You may need to click "unlock" and enter your password to make changes.

If you installed the driver using the Samsung installer, the Configurator is already installed and can probably be accessed through your software list.  If you installed using the repository, the configurator is a package you can select (for example, in Synaptic).  System-config-printer is a standard Debian package, and may already be installed: if you see a "Printers" option in your software list, that is probably it and you can try to add your printer through there.

More information is needed.  Have you installed system-config-printer or the suld-qt4-configurator so that you have an interface to manage printers?  Is your printer connected over the network or by USB?

Also, I recommend using either driver-4.01.17 or driver2-1.00.36 for that printer, as there have been updates since 3.00.90 that probably impact its use.  If you elect to use driver2, be sure to use system-config-printer, not the configurator, to manage it.

HP's website now appears to have all current Samsung printers and drivers available.  As of today, it appears that none of the driver files have been modified in any way, so the most current drivers remain the 1.00.36/37 set released more than two years ago.

Update: as of November 1, 2017, all Samsung printer business and support has transferred to HP.  As of today, the new HP support site is extremely limited and provides no Linux drivers.  While HP completes the transition and makes the drivers available again, you can continue to download the Samsung drivers from this site using the repository or directly via the Samsung Installer link.

If you update your packages to the lastest, this problem should be resolved for everyone.

Thank you.  I have updated the driver packages to include symlinks that should resolve this problem.

Thank you for sharing.  I have added this as a solution for scanning problems.

You appear to have set up both the "stable" (currently Stretch) and "Jessie" repositories.  There may be some conflict there with the vlc libraries as a result.  Try disabling the "stable" repository, refreshing your lists, and installing the configurator package again.

Alternatively, installing the qt3 version should probably work, because the dependencies will mostly draw from the suldr repository rather than debian.

Thanks for sharing.  I am going to decline to incorporate it into the package at least for now, because this adds an unnecessary step for those who don't want to mess with the source.  If it could be modified to default to something reasonable in the absence of setting the specific source, as it does now, I will include it.  I suspect I know how it could be done, but I don't have a test system to check it with.

Scanning / Re: I can print but can't scan with Samsung M2070

You should contact Samsung support directly for issues using printers with Windows.

Unfortunately I cannot offer any additional advice beyond what is posted on these forums and the website.  I don't have any personal experience relevant to this situation, and have never used Simple Scan.

Printing / Re: How do I start the driver?
« on: April 12, 2017, 21:47:18 »
The driver only operates the printer.  It has nothing to do with setting up the printer initially.  That process is handled by whatever system handles all printer installations.  If the printer is automatically detected by your system and configured, it may (or may not) select the correct driver, and/or may prompt you for the correct driver.  If the printer is not automatically detected, you will have to manually trigger the new printer installation through whatever tool is appropriate on your system.  To use the Samsung-provided driver, make sure you are selecting a driver called "Samsung Series...."; other drivers with "Samsung" in the name are usually an open-source alternative.

To tell which driver you are using for printing, you probably have a "Printing" or similar option on a Systems Tool menu.  (If not, you can access it by typing "system-config-printer" in a terminal.  In the event that is not installed, you can install the package the normal way.)  Then select the printer, go to Printer menu -> Properties, and look at "Make and Model".  If it starts with "Samsung Series..." it is the Samsung driver.  You can change the model here as well.

As far as the scanning, you will just need to keep trying different drivers until you find one that seems to work for both.  That is why there are so many drivers available in this repository.

You can try any version starting with 3.00.65, including the driver2 options.  The 4.00.36 is just the last time an update seems to have directly targeted this printer.  Based on what you are describing, I suspect the latest driver2 is probably your best bet.

If you run
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and delete any exact duplicate lines containing "bchemnet" in them, the warning will go away.  But it doesn't hurt anything if it appears.

I believe xsane saves files into the home folder by default.  You should be able to check and change it from the Preferences menu: (under "select filename").

You can try 2 things.  The easier one is to try to have Libreoffice change the way it outputs print jobs.  Open Libreoffice to a new file (any type), then go to the Tools Menu, Options, and select Print under "Libreoffice".  Uncheck (or check) the box next to "PDF as standard print job".  Click OK and try to print again.  If it still doesn't work, it is probably best to leave that option turned on (checked), so adjust it if necessary and try the next option.

The more involved option is to install the Samsung driver and use that.  You can set up the repository as described on the main page, through the SULDR link above.  Once you have the repository set up, choose driver2-1.00.36 to install.  You will then need to add your printer again as a new printer.  During the process, you may have to choose the correct driver (Samsung....M283x) or it may automatically pick it up.  The default Ubuntu driver might be the default, though, even with the new driver installed, so you should check to make sure you are using the M283x driver.

Download the Samsung installer v1.00.36 from the Samsung Installer page on this site.  Then extract all files, in Nautilus.  Assuming that you did all this on your desktop, you should now have a "uld" folder on the desktop.

Open a terminal.  Type:
Code: [Select]
cd Desktop/uld
sudo ./
And it should remove all the installed pieces.  You can then delete the downloaded file and uld folder.  You can now install whatever versions you would like to try through Synpatic.

The reason that you do not see it in Synaptic is that the installer adds files without telling the rest of the system what it has done.  "Packages" as .deb files (like I provide through the repository) include information that Synaptic and related programs can use to keep track of what was installed, for easy removal/update.  Much commercial software does not do this.

"Permission denied" probably means that the Samsung installer never really installed anything.  You can check by uninstalling the packages from this repository through Synaptic (which should work fine), then in a terminal type (without quotes) "ls /opt/".  If you see a listing like "smfp-common" or "Samsung" then you should follow the uninstallation procedure for version 1.00.xx on the Samsung Installer web page here.  If not, you are clean.  Then re-install through Synaptic, whichever version you want to try.  If one version doesn't work, you can try another, and the packages will automatically install/uninstall as needed.

If you downloaded files from Samsung's website to install, they will be the last (Version 1.00.xx) because that is all that Samsung presently provides.  If you only used Synpatic to install components, then those instructions don't apply to you.  You can safely leave any package installed through Synaptic in place.

No.  But if you run the Samsung uninstaller, it should clean up okay.  With recent versions, even if it misses a couple of things you should be okay to install the packages from this site.

Type "cd Desktop" (without quotes) in the terminal, prior to issuing dpkg command.  When you open the terminal you are in your home directory, not the Desktop.

Using the Repository / Re: apt-get update duplicates
« on: February 27, 2017, 15:21:48 »
It is not normal but not harmful.  Chances are that you do actually have duplicate entries in /etc/apt/sources.list - this happens to me every year or two on one or more of my systems with one or more repositories, but I have never investigated what causes it.  Deleting the duplicate lines (edit the file as root/sudo) and then reloading repositories (apt-get update or equivalent) takes care of the warning.

The error is of no concern.  The message is correct - the email address field does not follow Debian (Ubuntu) package policy.  But that is completely irrelevant to your ability to use (or trust) the package.  Lintian is the Debian tool to ensure that all packages conform to a very strict set of rules, and the vast majority of its warnings and errors are about trivial items.  A great many packages in the Ubuntu repository fail one or more lintian tests.

I have no idea why someone decided that this particular issue was so severe it needed to be brough to the attention of the standard user, who has no reason to know what it really means.

Of course, full disclosure forces me to point out that I made the package, so it would not be unreasonable to ignore my advice on this issue.  Theoretically I could have a nasty plan in mind, and I am unwilling to invest the time to meet the package standards to prove otherwise.  However, ~3500 people install the package every month, and I think that's about all you are likely to get as a second opinion.

Printing / Re: Xpress m2070 only resolution 600x600 not 1200x1200

It sounds like the driver is just ignoring the dpi setting.  Some do that.  I don't know why.

If it is possible to change the default on the printer itself, that might have an effect.
