I am running Linux Mint 17.3 == 14.04.1 LTS, Trusty Tahr.
My MFP is Samsung SCX-4623FW connected via USB.
Using only the drivers that come with the distro - I do not know how to tell which ones they are - the printer is automatically detected and prints perfectly fine. However, the scanner does not work at all. Simple Scan detects the scanner (correct "Scan Source"), but after clicking Scan it reports only "Failed to scan".
I tried installing the Samsung drivers. I first tried version suld-driver-4.00.39, and then version suld-driver-4.00.36 (which is listed as minimum for my scanner). With either of these drivers I can scan, but not print.
During installation I was asked which users I want to add to the "lp" group - I added every user on my system.
The administrator user - the one that I used to install the driver - can scan in colour, but all other users can only scan in black and white. This is using Simple Scan.
Printing is completely hosed! I have an option to "Print Test Page" or "Print Self-Test". The self-test prints out a page that says "If you can read this, you are using the wrong driver for your printer." :( The test page just prints gibberish.
