Thread: Samsung ML2164 Laser Printer Driver for 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Samsung ML2164 Laser Printer Driver for 13.1

    I just purchased a Samsung ML2164 Laser Printer. Is there a driver which will make this printer work in 13.1? Where to get it from?

    If you have not already done so you can have YaST try to install the
    driver for you from YaST > Printer

    Check the Samsung site out for the Unified Linux driver

    OK. I've downloaded the Linux Printer Driver V1.00.06. I've unarched it to a folder uld. Inside that folder are...

    arm (folder)
    i386 (folder)
    noarch (folder)
    x86_64 (folder)
    install.sh (this has an * after sh in a Bash console)
    uninstall.sh (so does this)

    I change to root and try to run install.sh from the uld folder but I get error (missing file operand). What operand should I add to get this driver to install? I have a 64bit 13.1 installed.

    Any and all help appreciated.

    Hmmm... in an effort to assist, I downloaded it, and ran the installer without issue
    Code:
     # ./install.sh 
    **** Running install
    **** Press Enter to continue or q and then Enter to quit:
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    
    **** Do you agree ? [y/n]: y
    **** Registering cups backend ...
    **** Are you going to use network devices? If yes, it is recommended to configure your firewall.
    **** If you want to configure firewall, enter 'y'. To skip, enter 'n' or just press enter: n
    **** CUPS restart OK
    **** Registering SANE backend ...
    **** Restarting udev ...
    **** Install finished
    Maybe you should capture the terminal output and post here like I did.

    OK By trial and error, I've got this far...

    change to the noarch folder
    execuse ../install.sh
    I get the Samsung Software License Agreement

    How do I exit that and continue with the install?

    This was posted before seeing your last post deano. I get back to you.

    OK when I capture the output I see after the software license agreement

    **** Do you agree ? [y/n]:

    I do not see this line when I run the install without capture. I see the license agreement and don't know how to exit that, in order to get to that prompt. I'm in Konsole at this point.

    Just press 'q'. Then you'll be prompted with
    Code:
    Do you agree ? [y/n]:
    Answer 'y'....

    BTW, if you'd read the thread I linked to earlier, it tells you the same
