Printing / Re: Network printer installation problem
« Last post by Nemo23 on December 04, 2019, 07:01:52 »

Sorry, I had asked the wrong question, I wanted to know where to get the ppd file, instead I download it myself ... I installed the package and reinstalled the printer via cups and now it works! Thanks

It is part of the standard Debian and Raspbian repository, so you should be able to install it the same way as any other package.

This driver will not work with the Raspberry Pi 4, no matter how you try to install it.  The issue is that the driver for ARM processors is built only for much older processers than the type used in the Raspberry Pi.

There is some evidence that the printer may work if you install the splix driver (printer-driver-splix package), and set it up as a ML-1660 printer.  This method should be compatible with the Raspberry Pi.

Printing / Network printer installation problem
« Last post by Nemo23 on December 03, 2019, 04:18:25 »
Goodmorning everyone,
I use a raspberrypi 4 with on Raspbian as home server, to this server I would like to connect my samsung printer 1665 ml to be able to print remotely ... I installed cups and downloaded the ppd and rastertospl files from the site ... I gave permission with :

sudo chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertospl
chown root:root /usr/lib/cups/filter
chown root:root /usr/lib/cups/backend

and installed the printer through cups graphic interface ... when I go to print I get the following error: "File "/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertospl" has insecure permissions (0100755/uid=1000/gid=1000)."

I then followed the guide on the forum, inserted the new line and updated the repository, but I receive this:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt update

Printing / Re: problem of printing in wifi: weird symbols

I tried different versions of the driver, going way back... and it didn't help.

So I re-installed the latest driver, that driver is needed for scanning, then went and customized CUPS. Copy pasting my posting on askubuntu:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1169909/samsung-wifi-printer-printing-garbage-after-upgrading-to-18-04/1169910

    open a browser
    navigate to localhost:631
    click on "Printers" in top bar
    click on name of the printer (Samsung...)
    Click on the "Administration" drop down menu, and select "Modify Printer"
    You'll be prompted for your user id and password, enter your Linux login credentials
    select the first printer in "Discovered Network Printers", "Continue"
    "Continue" again
    select "Samsung XXXXX driverless cups-filters", "Modify Printer"

Scanner Server (Scan to PC) / Scan to PC is dead
« Last post by bchemnet on August 31, 2019, 17:29:23 »
For all practical purposes, the Scan to PC utility is dead and will rarely work.  Nobody is actively maintaining it.  You are free to try it, but if it does not work then you are on your own.  For the reasons outlined in the link below, there is no real motiviation to address the issues.

Announcements / Why the driver is working less often
« Last post by bchemnet on August 31, 2019, 17:17:55 »
HP has shown no interest in updating the Samsung printer driver, and has no financial incentive to do so (after all, there has not been a new Samsung-branded printer in nearly 3 years as of this moment).  As of this post, the latest driver release is nearly 3 years old, and is really based on code that is now 5 or more years old.  So the driver is going to gradually stop working on modern Linux systems as Linux and CUPS continue to evolve.

In addition, qt3 and qt4 are long obselete, so the Configurator packages (last updated 7 years ago) will often not install, or even if they do they still not work.  This will continue to get more frequent.  Even if you do manage to get everything installed, note that the relevant qt packages depend on an obselete and insecure openssl, and will not work with a modern library.  That is the main reason I am not attempting to repackage these programs in a way that will allow them to be installed even after distros drop the necessary dependencies.

Finally, CUPS has made design changes that, starting with version 2.3 (included in most mid-2019 Linux distros), are intended to make all drivers and PPD (printer instruction) files obselete.  As of 2.3, some releases of CUPS already do not work with the Samsung PPD files due to the use of non-standard keys in the Samsung PPD files.  Sometime in the next couple of years, it is likely that a current CUPS install will simply not work at all with these drivers on any system.  The new approach for CUPS is based entirely on the IPP protocol, which some (but by no means all) Samsung printers support, to varying extents.  See, for example:
https://www.cups.org/blog/2018-06-06-demystifying-cups-development.html
https://github.com/apple/cups/issues/5562

Somewhat related, scanning support that depends on the Samsung drivers continues to get less reliable each year due to various system changes in Linux, and there is no work around for this.

So nearly all Samsung-branded printers are going to stop working in Linux over the next few years if you keep an up-to-date system.  I will continue to host the files and resources here for a couple of more years, but after that there will not be much point and the best solution to a non-working Samsung printer will probably be to replace it.

Unfortunately, all I can offer as a solution is to try a different version of the driver.  Or to contact HP to see if they have any interest in developing an updated driver, but I doubt it both because they have no financial incentive and because CUPS is making changes that will eventually make obselete all drivers in Linux (and printers that do not support the new CUPS approach).

I have the same issue, well almost, with a M3065FW:

- first time I print is fine
- then it prints the postscript source (pages and page of what looks like random characters, but you can tell it's postscript)

It starts working fine again, for a single print, after I either reboot or unplug/replug the printer (honestly not sure which of the two).

I installed suld-driver2-1.00.39 through the repository on Ubuntu 18.04.

I never that problem with Ubuntu 14.04 with, I'm not sure which previous version of the driver.
