Forgot to mention. When I am using repository I get three options radio buttons.

Select printer from database
Provide PPD file
Search for driver to download.

I have tried the first which results in the internal error print out. But when I try the third option it the make  field it finds the printer label/meta data. But when i hit search it cannot find anything.

I also installed the driver using the repositories. That does in fact install a driver. However, when I go to print it renders another error


internal error. please use the proper driver

position 0x0 (0)
system h6fw_5_49/xl_op
line 180
version SPL 5.49 10-20-2010

OK, so I just tried the downloaded driver. I removed the lines from the sources.list. Refreshed the repositories. And when i try to run the sh script still get permission denied.

I am using sudo for all my commands

You seem to have mixed the two ways of installing the driver.  The two approaches are:

1. Use the repository.  For this, you have to install through your package management software.  You do not need the download that you are using.

2. Use the download.  For this, you must run the install as root (sudo).  In this approach, you do not need to have the repository source or key set up.

Hello, I recently upgraded to Mint 19 and need to reinstall the Samsung driver for ML-1675.

Also installed the Keyring using the deb file
But when it comes to running the sh script I get the following error.

accordingly I have run chmod on the

No, there is no documentation.  The reason being that almost every version of the driver requires a different approach to packaging.  That said, the .deb files themselves are a kind of documentation, because it is possible to just open one for a particular version and see what was done.

So I do not see a lot value in documenting how to build the debs.  Only a few people are likely to have a combination of time, interest, and expertise necessary to do it on their own.

That said, I may have time in the coming months to build deb files that roll several packages into one, so that individuals can download and save a single deb for their preferred installer and use that instead of the many packages I now have configured.  I am not sure if that is feasible for the older drivers, but the "driver2" versions it would be straightforward.

The Internet Archive also has archived this entire site, and presumably will do so at least one more time before the site shuts down.  All of the existing files and content will remain available there indefinitely, including the debs.  The archive does not work as a repository, but all of the individual files can be obtained and installed manually that way.

Is the way you repackage the driver documented somewhere? If not, could you provide, how you do it? This way, everybody can easily reproduce the packages on its own!

Would be awesome!
Printing / Scanned documents printing very dark
« Last post by siawacsh on July 10, 2018, 17:18:38 »
Hi, I have a Samsung ML-1675 with  driver2 1.00.39 driver on Linux Mint 18.3 64 bit.

I am finding every document that I scan in prints too dark. Other documents are fine.

My scanner is the Cannon 200 Lide using Simple Scan

I have tried playing around with simple scan brightness, contrast and quality settings which has not helped much.

I cannot see anything under system administration for scanners.

Can anyone help with that?

Thank you.

Frequent visitor 2008 - 2014 as Ubuntu developed.

Not had any real problems with my Samsung SCX4500W in recent years.

However big thank you for all your time and efforts spent helping hundreds of users with Samsung printers.

Incredible amount of knowledge and tips picked up over the years.

Many thanks  and good luck for the future.

The SULDR (and all of will be shutting down in May 2019. I no longer have the time or ability to keep up with hosting it. In addition, it is unlikely that HP will be updating any drivers for the Samsung-branded printers, and many drivers already fail to work correctly with new Linux distributions. Finally, for those with a Samsung printer less than ~10 years old, the newest drivers available for download from the HP website work just as well, if possibly not quite as conveniently, as the repackaged versions here.

If anyone is interested in taking over some or all of this content, I am willing to assist in that process. Post in the forums expressing interest.
