Hi Pier,

Thanks mark and steve, sorry for the late but here there is a beautyful
sun and see and beach and girls... :-)) and I'm taking advantage of
them, I will try splix. Thnx again, ciao :-))

my samsung clp-320n isn't in the splix List of supported printers, did
you use splix with this printer using another printer driver??

I feel like we should start over again. If you do not have a correct CLP-320 driver for your printer, I would do the following:

First, I would suggest that you download the Linux driver from the Samsung site. Samsung usually has good support for Linux, I usually recommend their printers for Linux -- the SCX and ML printers work great!


Here are the steps to download the driver:

* choose the driver (the support page will offer support for the CLP-320N/XAA OR CLP-320N/SEE -- make sure you pick the right printer)[1]
* once on the CLP-320N/??? page, choose the "Downloads" tab
* choose the "Driver" tab and download the Linux "Unified Printer" driver (click on the icon under the "File" column)

Here are the steps to install the driver (Note that I use Mageia2 with KDE, but the process should be similar on Gnome or other Linux windowing systems):

* find the "Unified Driver" that you downloaded.
* right-click on the file and choose "uncompress the file here" -- this will uncompress the files into a file folder "cdroot" * double-click on the file folder "cdroot" and you will notice that there is an "autorun" file that you should run in admin mode. There are a variety of ways to do this -- the following is one way of doing it:

** in the open window where you see the "autorun" file, right-click anywhere in the window, but not on any file or file folder. This will open a menu list, choose Action->Open terminal here
** this will open Konsole (do the command $ls
** this should show "autorun* Linux/"
** give the command $su and enter your root password
** you are now in root level and you should now see a "#" instead of a "$"
** give the command #ls
** you should still see "autorun* Linux/"
** do the command #sh autorun

* you will now see the "Unified Driver" window
* click on "Next"
* accept the agreement and click on Next"
* I usually pick "Select All" and "Next"
* I usually check the "Disable LPT port support" and "Next"
* wait for the driver to install
* a new window appears, at this point, I usually select "Network printer" and click on "Search" * the installer will search for just a few seconds and stop -- just ignore this and click on "Cancel" * a small window appears "Printer is not installed. Are you sure ...", click on "Yes"
* the installer will still complete the installation
* the driver should now be installed

After this, use your distro's printer installer to check to see if the right printer driver is being used. You should find the CLP-320 driver in the Samsung list of drivers.


Hope this helps.
