Printing / slpr not working (broken link?)
« on: March 09, 2013, 20:31:58 »
I use CLX-3305W over WiFi with ubuntu 12.10 (quantal). I have installed the driver over the repository including the samsungmfp-lpr package and everything seems to work fine (with qt3 only, qt4 had known (?) problems). However I wondered, if this slpr is working at all, because I do not get any extra printer options like 'multiple pages per sheet'. When I now run lpr directly (in my PATH /usr/local/bin takes precedence over /usr/bin, so /usr/local/bin/lpr -> ../../../opt/Samsung/mfp/bin/slpr) I get this:
Code: [Select]
$ lpr
/usr/local/bin/lpr: 15: /usr/local/bin/lpr: /usr/local/bin/lpr.app: not found

So maybe a symbolic link like
Code: [Select]
cd /usr/local/bin
sudo ln -s ../../../opt/Samsung/mfp/bin/slpr.app lpr.app
is needed in addition in the samsungmfp-lpr package? (edit: corrected code error, ln finally working)

After I add it (s)lpr starts without problems.

Please correct me if any of my above speculative statements is wrong. Thx!
