Thank you @ellepdesk for amazing solution of problem and @dan for sharing step-by-step guide.
I can say, for those people, for whom splix driver is not going to work (like for me), this guide might become a magic pill. I have Xerox Phaser 3260 printer, and for 2-sided printing support I had to use rastertospl cupsFilter, that splix does not provide at least in arm64 debian package. Likely there is a possibility to tweak Xerox/Samsung PPD file and use pstoqpdl/rastertoqpdl filters shipped with splix, but I don't understand this stuff, so I had to use PPD imposed SPL driver.

What I can add to the previous comment of @dan is only a suggestion to include all arch labels for each distribution into a single line under sources.list - thus you can avoid APT warnings about duplicated sources. Like this (example):

deb [arch=arm64,amd64] bookworm main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
deb [arch=arm64,amd64] bookworm-updates main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
deb [arch=arm64,amd64] bookworm-security main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
deb [arch=arm64,amd64] bookworm-backports main contrib non-free non-free-firmware
deb [arch=amd64] debian extra

But that's it. Everything else just works!


A driver that nominally works for arm64 is now avialable for experimenting through the repository, but it is untested.
