Thread: Printer Samsung CLP-310

  1. #1

    Default Printer Samsung CLP-310

    Hello Experts,
    does anyone of you know how to get the above mentioned printer running under opensuse 11.2 ? It looks like that there is no driver available. With the previous version all worked fine.
    Suggestions are appreciated!

    Thanks for the link but the 'make' give me an error:

    In file included from src/compress.cpp:33:
    include/algo0x13.h:28:21: error: jbig.h: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
    In file included from src/compress.cpp:33:
    include/algo0x13.h:52: error: jbg_enc_state does not name a type
    make: *** [optimized/src/compress.o] Fehler 1

    It look like something is missing!
    Any idea?

    Not familiar with Samsung printers, but is there no similar driver you can try via CUPS? (For example CLP-315).

    I would have thought that the foo2qpdl driver would already be available from the installed CUPS database without having to try and install externally.

    This might also be worth a try

    Samsung Printers

    Usually there are readme instructions with these packages to help you install them correctly.

    This Ubuntu-based HOW TO may offer useful info too.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I was looking around and found a Unified Linux Driver.
    The printer is working but the quality is not quite good.
    The download of foo2qpdl was quite slow and stopped at 17%.
    The splix driver prints an error msg like this:

    SPL-C ERROR - Please use the proper driver
    POSITION: 0x0 (0)
    SYSTEM: src/xl_image
    LINE: 606
    VERSION: SPL-C 5.35 11-20-2007

    Does anyone has a workaround and have experience with the splix?

    If you want to use the splix driver, you're probably bettter off getting support from the developers at

    SPL driver for UNIX

    I don't know which version of the driver you're using, but you should be aware of this issue

    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=375258

    OpenSUSE do not appear to use a recent version of the splix driver because of possible patent issues within the code.

    I did a quick search for a splix RPM via Webpin, and found this

    splix driver package

    BTW, is the error you get happening while attempting to install the driver, or while configuring, or using it?

    I get the error printed on the test page.

    I get the same error message when attempting to do a test print using openprinting. I am using opensuse 11.2. Any suggestions?

    I can only suggest reviewing all links to other sites I provided previously. In particular did you try downloading the driver avaialble from

    Samsung Printers

    The CLP-300 driver tarball might be ok.

    I did ow that machine. With the unified drivers of Samsung it works, but it installs you a noteworthy amount of dysfunctional software (any other expression here would be censored) and also it creates you a security risk on the machine because it sets wrong permissions. This suboptimal windoze like programmed "help program" interferes also with the printing routing of the pdf readers. In synthesis, I had to first go through an useless and unwanted and not deactivatable dialog of Samsung. Then I had to print but sometimes it was even tedious because the settings of this stupid "Samsung Control Center" with the kind software to make me buy new toner (wow) did conflict with the settings of the OS.
    I eventually solved my problems: I gave the printer to a friend using windows. Next printer will be HP.
