4623FW - scans fine, only prints gibberish
« on: June 10, 2012, 16:34:25 »
Hi,
Using your repositories  (http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/)  I can scan fine, but only get gibberish when I print.  I use the latest Linux Mint 12 Lisa.  USB attached.
Your recent update hasn't changed my problem.  Thanks

Have you tried the samsungmfp-driver-pdf-fix package?

A similar approach that might work is here: http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/forum/index.php?topic=5.0 .

If neither of those works, I will need more information.  Does it always print gibberish, or only from certain applications?  Can you print a test page?  If you print to a file first as a postscript (ps) instead of pdf (or vice versa), does that file then print okay?

I took one for science & tried the "timing fix"  http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/forum/index.php?topic=5.0
& it worked!  Did the test page & a document fine.

I also griped & whined to Samsung - we'll see.

Thanks a lot :)
