Hi,
This printer is not listed under CUPS but is know to work with ML-1710 driver.
The printer came with a companion CD with Linux drivers

I was able to get this ppd file and cp int /usr/share/cups/model directory.
If I set it up with this ppd file it will not print. Rather if I use ML-1710 model it will. Please note that this is what I have:
Code:
ls /usr/share/cups/model/
deskjet2.ppd  dymo.ppd     epson9.ppd     laserjet.ppd  okidata9.ppd  pxlmono.ppd             stcolor2.ppd  stphoto2.ppd  zebra.ppd
deskjet.ppd   epson24.ppd  foomatic-ppds  okidat24.ppd  pxlcolor.ppd  Samsung-ML-1610.ppd  stcolor.ppd   stphoto.ppd


net-print/cups-1.1.23-r1 +nls +pam +samba -slp +ssl
net-print/foomatic-3.0.2

I created an UDEV rule for the USB printer:
Code:
BUS="usb", SYSFS{product}="Samsung ML-1610 Series", NAME="%k", SYMLINK="ML-1610", GROUP="users"

I also have this node:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 3 23 nov 20:14 /dev/ML-1610 -> lp0


Here is the printer section:

Maybe your printer is supported by the famous foomatic-db?
Code:

emerge  foomatic-db

I regret but there is no Samsung ML-1610 in database.
http://www.linuxprinting.org/printer_list.cgi?make=Samsung

Any other advice?

Googling for it brought up that the printer will work with "Foomatic/gdi (recommended)" or "Generic gdi" under cups. But if i get you right, it works, so why fix it?

I have the same printer and it works fine. I've used both the provided linux driver and the, on the cups site for other samsung ml-printers suggested, generic gdi driver.

I run gnome 2.12 with the udev/hal/dbus system and didn't have to do anything to that to get my printer recognized. did have some problems getting the samsung driver to recognize the printer on the usb address though. think I just gave it a fake dev and then corrected it in the config file manually.

The samsung driver has not really proven itself better than the gdi. i do however get a samsung printer window in stead of the generic gnome window so that is annoying. I'd say go with the GDI driver.

I'd like to add that I installed the drivers off that CD Samsung ships with the printer which worked without any problems. Gave me a fully functioning printer - why not try that?

Because they are not necessary , and based on GTK1 :roll:
If i can have Open-Source Drivers from Linux-Printing Project which are based on the same source, like the drivers from the Samsung CD, I will choose the Open-Source Drivers ;)

?? Since when is that driver based on Gtk1 ??
...you're a bit off-track, but nevermind! :)

If instead you speak of that dreaded conf-tool ... well then you're right; but who cares for that??

Now that's what I call an argument! 8)

On that "not necessary" note of your's: Afaik only 1510 is available "in the open"; anybody know any differences to 1610 from Samsung?

Hi and thank you for your posts.

I am aware that there are drivers provided in the Samsung companion CD for linux for few distros (obviously Gentoo was not there) :( There is also a ppd file in the CD which I posted at top of this thread.

Rather than installing the driver through the Samsung software I decided to just cp this ppd file into /usr/share/cups/model/ When trying to setup a new printer I get it listed and select it. The problem is that it would not print anything (not even the printer led blinks.)

1. So, I wonder wheather the ppd file (GDI) is correct or not. Has anybody who has it properly workng compared his ppd file content with what I have posted (which is what is available in the CD)?

2. If any of you (I believe toMeloos) has this printer ML-1610 with its own ppd driver, please post this file and confirm me where I should cp and also what steps to undertake for implementing this installation. I would be thankful.

3. I do not know how/why but my udev has never allowed me to plug and have a device node automatically created under /dev That perhaps it does and I do not recognize this could be. So, how would I find out what device node would udev assign/create when I plug in the USB cable of this printer and also (for future reference) for other devices?

I thank you for your precious assistance,
Spiro

I used this GDI PPD file:

http://www.linuxprinting.org/ppd-o-matic.cgi?driver=gdi&printer=Samsung-ML-1510&show=0

As you can see it's officially for the ML-1510 but it worked perfectly for me. Just don't ask me how I installed it because I seem to have forgotten it. Guess I must cut back on the beer :roll:

Hi toMeloos,

could I ask where did you save this gdi file?
Also, from what SAMSUNG companion cd provides, is the ppd file the only file to cp into gentoo or is there some other files? I ask this because I was able to cp the ml-1610 ppd file from the cd into gentoo cups folder and at CUPS GUI I was able to see the ML-1610 listed under Samsung printers but when I go to print a test page it would not do anything. Strange or not?
So far I am using the ML-1710 driver and it seems to work but do not know if this is proper.

Also, the driver you provided when I open this URL I get a file with bynaries, how to use it and where to save it?

Lastly, according to this cups thread it seems that the cd driver work fine. I wonder: which files to cp from the cd and were to cp to?

Please advice...
Spiro

Hi,

I have just bought a new ML-1610 and I'm in the exactly same position as you SAngeli.
runned gnome-cups-add
button install driver, then selected the ppd
select listed ML-1610 under Samsung printers
but it doesn't print.

ML-1710 works for me too. Is this driver ate least giving us the toner saver option ?
Also I think that using a driver from 1710 is better than 1510, for 1610. Don't you agree ?
How can we make the 1610 ppd work ?

Thanks in advance,
m00nxaild

Hi,

I do not know. I have submitted a support request at linuxprinting but nobody has dared to reply.
I know that the ppd file inside the companion CD of the Samsung printer could be good to work on but I do not have any experience on this.
If someone has knowledge on how to make the ppd file work, please let us know.

Moreover, as this printer is not mine and do not have it handy, could you please (m00nxaild) post the entire ppd content of this printer driver so people can take a look?

thanks,
Spiro

Hello,

I have bought ML-2010 (it's "same" printer) one week ago. There was not linux drivers on my Samsung's CD so I had to download a drivers from Samsung website. I haven't been sucessfull with CUPS and this printer (with ML-2010 ppd file) on Mandriva linux. I haven't tried to install this printer on Gentoo yet.

I wasted whole day to fix it, but unsucessfully. So I tried LPR (ngLPR) against CUPS and everything seems to be OK. ML-2010 prints well.

I know it isn't professional solution, but I can print. What's your view on LPR?

Regards,
Caleb

i've got the samsung ml-1740 and had some issues with printing... i mean with the printer setup.

it had to do with the ghostscript. you need to use the esp ghostscript because it ie the only one having the samsunggdi driver built it. (i think you don't want to try fixing your own ghotscript)

you can check if your ghostscript has the driver by typing:
Code:
> echo 'devicenames ==' | gs - | grep -c 'samsunggdi'


if it counts 1, you're fine, if not emerge ghostscript-esp

I just got a ML-1610. The printer is installed fine (via samsung's script). However, it doesn't print.
If I take a look at cups' error-log I see warnungs about missing paper:
Code:

W [04/Apr/2006:17:38:28 +0200] [Job 4] Media tray empty!

The printer itself seems to have a different opinion, if I remove the paper, the LED turns red, if I insert the paper the LED turns green again. So the printer itself recognises the paper. So there must be an issue with cups or the communication with the printer.
I'll take a deeper look into cups with debug enabled later (no time atm) but if anyone has an idea I'd be happy to hear it :)

Well what I did was --- this is for the next guy who goes looking for a solution to his little problem.

Emerge foomatic-db. [I had a problem with my USE= so I actually added it to packages.use]
Code:
#USE="ppd" emerge foomatic-db


Found the right printer by running (this is a search feature)
Code:
#foomatic-ppdfile -P Samsung-ML


then compiled the .xml driver(?) file into a ppd
Code:
#foomatic-ppdfile -d gdi -p Samsung-ML-1510 > /usr/share/cups/model/samsung-ml-1510.ppd


Then I removed the previous printer attempt (through the web interface because I can't be bothered to config it manually)
And added the new printer.

Alternately, you can just copy over a ML-1510 or ML-1710 from online or the CD that came with the printer.

All that code is from memory, so if it borks on you, just massage it a bit or RTFM :wink:
