    Unhappy [SOLVED] How to install printer driver for Samsung ML2525


    This is a driver that's very new, so it's not installablre in the normal way, and I'm way to rusty on the command line stuff. Can anyone assist?

    Here are the steps:

    [Ubuntu OS Installation]

    1. Download and extract the driver.

    2. Open ''Root Terminal''

    3. Execute installation program.
    $ sudo cdroot/autorun

    4. After install, PPD path is set again.
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/share/cups/model/samsung /usr/share/ppd/custom/samsung

    5. Execute Configurator, and Add your printer model name by Add Printer.

    I have done step 1 and 2, but step 3 fails and I don't know why...

    Hmm, these are the official steps from Samsung on installing the Unified Printer Driver. When you run the 'sudo cdroot/autorun' command, what kind of errors does it spit out?

    Before you run the command, make sure your present working directory is just outside the extracted 'cdroot' directory. Also, maybe check to make sure the installation script has executable permissions.

    It looks like a kind gentleman/lady setup the drivers in a Ubuntu repository. So if your running Ubuntu, this is another installation option for you to consider. Here is a link: HOWTO Install Samsung Unified Printer Driver - Ubuntu Forums.
