Odroid XU3 and M2070
« on: January 23, 2016, 17:04:13 »
I am new to Linux. I have Odroid XU3 with Ubuntu 14.04, Exynos5 processor with armhf architecture. Unfortunately, I didn't check availability of a printer driver in detail, before bought my Samsung M2070FW. Now I see, that there is a lack of binary driver for armhf. Can anyone help me, please?

You should contact Samsung and let them know this.  There seems to be enough interest for them to release an armhf driver, but I don't know if people are actually telling them.

In the meantime, I am not aware of any solution for that particular printer.  It does not seem to be supported by any of the alternate drivers.  You might have some luck trying to use it as a "generic" printer, but without any printer-specific features.  The only other option I can think of is to create an amd64 or i386 guest as a virtual machine installation (I think Xen can handle this with an armhf host?), install the driver in the guest, and run the printer that way.  But I can't be sure it will work at all, and it may be a considerable amount of effort.
