Howto enable SULD drivers on rasberrypi
« on: July 02, 2021, 04:03:56 »
I've managed to get the suld drivers working on raspberrypi by using qemu-user emulation of amd64.
Sharing my work so others can benefit:

 # enable transparent emulation of amd64 (on armhf/arm64)

apt install qemu-user-binfmt binfmt-support
dpkg --add-architecture amd64

# enable suldr repo for amd64
echo 'deb [arch=amd64] https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/suldr.list
wget 'http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/pool/debian/extra/su/suldr-keyring_2_all.deb'
dpkg -i suldr-keyring_2_all.deb


# Make sure you have set up apt to install packages for amd64
# You may need to add [arch=arm64] or [arch=armhf] modifiers to lines in /etc/apt.sources.list
# and/or add the main ubuntu/debian repositories for arm64

# Update the package DB
apt update

# Install the driver indicated for your printer, in my case for a Samsung C410, suld-driver2-1.00.39. 

# This wil pull in a LOT of dependencies (about 200MB) of amd64 libs
apt install suld-driver2-1.00.39:amd64


Enjoy printing


UPDATE:
Thanks to bchemnet for updating the drivers before anyone else read this, the procedure has been shortened considerably.
I've removed the redundant steps to avoid confusion

Thank you for sharing.  I have made this sticky and linked to it from the web pages.

Note that the steps for modifying and overriding packages should not be necessary with the most recent update to the repository (eliminating most of the steps in the middle).  Also note that version 1.00.36 is no longer available and 1.00.39 should be used.

Thanks for updating the driver-common and ppd packages, I've updated the procedure.
I've also updated to 1.00.39.
