Donation

I searched in this Forum a long time in this evening but I couldn't find any possibilities to donate for the great Repo at http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/, that support my clx-6220 very good.

It wasn't allowed for me, to send PM e.q to an admin or any other member for asking at http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/forum/index.php?action=credits.

I think, that's not good. Can anybody from the developers or offical members from the credits side tell me, how I am able to make a donation, maybe with PayPal ... or don't you want a donation ?

Horrible ...

I'm glad the printer is working and the repository is useful.  At this time, I am not accepting donations.  The costs for running this site and the repository are not excessive, and I don't want anyone to feel like they need to spend more money just to get a printer working (using them is expensive enough as it is).

At the present apparent growth rate of users for this repository, in a couple of years I may need to upgrade to a more extensive web hosting system or a dedicated server; at that point, I may reconsider my decision.

Ok, I accept your opinion. No problem. Call, if you want to get donations.

But I think it has to be normal, that we all like to appreciate good and helpful work !
As I interpret, so is your work, around the proprietary samsung-binaries, open-source.

I wrote Samsung, that it is terrible, that the driver/modules aren't open-source.
That isn't a good way for all !
And I invite Samsung by Mail, to give the community open-source driver/modules.

Open-source drivers would be great, and no doubt would simplify everything around this repository.

I would accept closed-source drivers that weren't a clossal pain to deal with and built using ancient libraries as a short-term solution, though, and Samsung hasn't even expressed any apparent interest in that.

Hi,

Just FYI, I would be glad to make a donation too.

My use case is like that:
1. I tried Samsung Unified Linux Driver from Samsung official site. It hadn't worked.
2. I found your repository, and tried the improved installer from it. It worked.
3. I'd like to thank you with a small donation, especially if it won't take much time (PayPal is ok).

Anyway, thanks for the good job.
