Printing / Re: problem of printing in wifi: weird symbols
« Last post by in_die75 on August 19, 2019, 00:42:28 »
I'm sorry I was wrong for the number, it's 467...

I've already installed the uld driver and I think it's the Samsung version.
The printing works only with the USB connection, whereas the scanner doesn't work even when connected by USB.

Printing / Re: problem of printing in wifi: weird symbols
« Last post by bchemnet on August 18, 2019, 06:44:33 »
Do you mean the c467 (not c647)?  As far as I know Samsung, never produced a printer with a model number of c647 (or c6 anything).

My three suggestions are to (in no particular order):
1. If you installed via the repository, try using the Samsung installer.  Or if you installed using the Samsung installer, switch to using the repository.
2. Try a different driver version within the supported range.
3. Try printing by USB, even if only temporarily, to determine if it is a problem specific to the wireless connection.

Printing / problem of printing in wifi: weird symbols
« Last post by in_die75 on August 15, 2019, 11:17:26 »
Hi,

I've just installed my Samsung Xpress c647 printer in WIFI and my problem is that the result doesn't correspond to the original document.
It prints a lot of pages with weird symbols, it seems like it's an encoding problem (but why does it print a lot of pages instead of one ?).
Can you help me please !?

Regards,
Christelle

Success Stories / Success with Samsung ML-1670 under Manjaro
« Last post by inksi on July 18, 2019, 15:07:09 »
Hi,

I inherited a Samsung ML-1670 which was lucky because the old hp has long been a source of trouble. But I could not get the little Samsung to work except under Windows - which I never really use

The printer did not appear in the cups list despite having added in most available extra driver packages (all the foomatic ones, the splix one, and maybe more)
The ML-1660 driver did not work
no generic 5e selections worked
no foomatic selections worked
I never found a linux driver on the Samsung site

The most I could get was a test page telling me 'Internal Error - Please use the proper driver'.

I tried no end of hints and workarounds then for some reason, perhaps a simpler search, the SULDR site popped up. I downloaded the 1.00.27 driver and unzipped the gzipped tar 'UnifiedLinuxDriver-1.00.27.tar.gz' in my Download directory. Then I did a cd to the uld directory created and issued the command
$ sudo ./install-printer.sh

This did the trick, I modified the printer under CUPS and saw the new driver there read;y for selection ....
So easy ...

BINGO

Very grateful because I needed a new printer but could not afford a new one. I hope we have solved this for posterity. I wish there was such a workable solution for the hp :)

many many thanks.

Printing / Re: ML-1670P Printer Gives Internal Error after upgrade Fedora 30
« Last post by bchemnet on June 11, 2019, 05:50:08 »
I solve this problem in ubuntu 19.04 installing printe-driver-splix and this openprinting ppd --> https://mega.nz/#!9kcz2Cbb!xwTwiaD-RJTtEDu19V1NFSxZiAcRLapId0HO82Rs3Vc
Thanks for sharing.  Note that a more stable link to the ppd is https://github.com/rshev/SpliXextras .  It is possible that sufficiently motivated individuals could use this as a model for adapting other PPD files for use with splix (printing only, not for scanning), as the content differences between this and the Samsung PPD are not large.

Printing / Re: ML-1670P Printer Gives Internal Error after upgrade Fedora 30

Thanks a million. I used the source from Fedora 29 - cups version 2.2.8-10 and could build it on Fedora 30 without any issues and the printer works.

As you suggested, I have posted a bug report but as you indicated, not much hope of it being addressed.

On the other hand, if Samsung/HP could release the source of the driver, it would be freedom!

This error seems to be appearing with several ML printers on distros that have updated to cups 2.2.11 or pulled recent patches into 2.2.10.  Although there are no CUPS errors reported, I believe this is due to some change in CUPS.  Please report it as a bug to Fedora and ask that it be escalated to CUPS.  But honestly I expect that the CUPS team will say "not our problem", as they seem determined to keep making changes that are breaking support for Samsung printers.

As a fix, my best suggestion is to revert back to CUPS 2.2.10.

Printing / ML-1670P Printer Gives Internal Error after upgrade Fedora 30

I am using the ver 1.0.39.  After upgrading to Fedora 30, the printer is printing the following message whenever a document contains any image, even if grayscale;

INTERNAL ERROR - uw_color == 4
SYSTEM : h6fw_5.49/x1_image
LINE : 341
VERSION : SPL 5.49 10-20-2010

Cups does not seem to show any error.

Printing / Re: CLP 320N not working anymore: SPL-C ERROR
« Last post by bchemnet on May 04, 2019, 18:08:55 »
This problem is related to the CUPS issue reported here:
https://github.com/apple/cups/issues/5562

The gist is that CUPS is making changes that are not compatible with the Samsung drivers.  CUPS 2.2.11 has recently been patched to restore working behavior for Samsung printers, but there is no guarantee that will remain true.  Debian inherited the problematic change in 2.2.10-4 and it may remain as of 2.2.10-6.  If you are using a Debian-based distribution and still have this problem, report it to the bug tracker and reference the CUPS issue above.

This is all related to a complete change in the way that CUPS handles printer drivers, as described here:
https://www.cups.org/blog/2018-06-06-demystifying-cups-development.html

The gist is that printers that do not use IPP, and/or that use custom drivers such as the Samsung driver, and at risk of no longer working after CUPS 2.3 is released (although they will likely continue working for some unknown amount of time after the initial release).  Some of the newer Samsung-branded printers support IPP, so will not necessarily be affected by the changes.  I do not know what the long-term implications are for continuing to provide this repository and the associated drivers.
