Thread: Issues: Samsung ML-1915 USB printer

    Default Issues: Samsung ML-1915 USB printer

    1) Using CUPS, I added a New Printer. CUPS correctly identifies the printer connection as "usb://Samsung/ML-191x%20252x%20Series". The driver I specified is "Samsung ML-191x 252x Series (en)". The "Default Options" are set correctly. Printing a test page gives the following message: "Unable to open print file: No such file or directory"
    2) Download and install the Samsung Unified Driver. Run the Samsung Unified Driver as root. When attempting to run "Print Test Page", get an error message that printer at the configured port does not exist.

    3) Go into YAST > Printer > Automatic Configuration > Check box "Do an automatic configuration of local connected printers now". Check box "Use the package udev-configure-printer for automatic USB printer configuration". Go back to CUPS to print a Test Page. Page fails with message ""/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl failed". I consider this progress!

    Have examined /var/log/cups/error_log. Nothing stands out to me, but I have v little experience reading CUPS log files! Tail end is given here:

    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_a_Printer
    Code:
    USB printers When the printer is connected to the USB, and when it is the only  printer which is connected to the USB, reload the kernel module for  direct USB printer access (as root): 
    
     
    rmmod usblp modprobe usblp  You can test if the printer is accessible as first USB printer via /dev/usb/lp0 using the following command (as root): 
    
     
    echo -en "\rHello\r\f" >/dev/usb/lp0  If the above "rmmod usblp" command did show an error message like  "Module usblp does not exist in /proc/modules" the usblp kernel module  was not loaded before so that you may unload the usblp kernel module  with "rmmod usblp" after the test to go back to the state before the  test.
