Installing a Samsung ML-1915 Laserprinter

Finished installing our new Samsung ML-1915 laserprinter tonight, on Ubuntu 9.10 (64bit) used as our terminal server. I started by downloading and unpacking the Universal Linux driver, which turned out to be pretty useless (requires QT, which I don’t have installed on the server).

Using a Gentoo How-to for guidance, I copied the “rastertosamsungspl” filter (found under [unpack-directory of the driver]/cdroot/Linux/x86_64/at_root/usr/lib64/cups/filter) to /usr/lib64/cups/filter (since this is a 64bit server).

I then followed the steps (from step number 3) described for Arch Linux, here.

And, wazaam, it all worked like a charm. Printed testpage and some stuff on Python ASN.1.
