Hello again.
I've decided to install LL on my desktop dual booting with Windows 7. All done and all good - the only problem I'm encountering is with my printer, a mono laser Samsung SCX-3405FW. When I configure, it recognises the printer i.e. 3400 series but only recommends a generic driver, which I choose from the database (there is an option available for Samsung but my model number does not appear). The next recommended option is the generic "text-only", which I choose and all appears OK until I try to print a test page. I get the error "CUPS server error - There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'."
Not being sure where to go next, I decided to download from the Samsung website the only driver available for Linux (ULD_V1.00.27.04.tar.gz). I managed to extract to a folder called ULD. Now I've come to a grinding halt.
Any help from cyberspace would be appreciated.
Thanks
Paul

I have a Samsung SCX-3405W
I have never used it in Linux Lite (I only print about a dozen pages per year) but I will try to set it up, and give you the voodoo, assuming I am successful. I did get it working in Mint 16 and Mint 17, previously.
The included instructions from the Samsung website are not entirely accurate...

Driver: ULD_V1.00.27.04.tar.gz
(same driver for SCX-3405FW and SCX-3405W)

Go to samsung.com > Printers > Owners and Support > Downloads > Office > Printers > Black and White Multifunction Printers > SCX-3405W > GET Downloads > DOWNLOAD (downloaded to new folder /Downloads/Samsung2015/ )
Open File Manager to /Downloads/Samsung2015/ > right click on downloaded file,  ULD_V1.00.27.04.tar.gz > Extract here
Creates folder - uld
Right-click on uld folder > Open in terminal
In terminal, enter: sudo ./install-printer.sh
NOTE: You have to hit enter to scroll through the licensing garbage, I mean verbage, and if you scroll too fast you will kill the process, and have to start over. Just scroll fast until you see Item #9 and then go slowly until you see the Y/N request.
Rebooted
Menu > System > Printers (configure) > Add New > Samsung SCX-3400

Printer is now working.
Now for the scanner...


It appears that all you have to do for the scanner is run: sudo ./install.sh
after installing the printer. (not sudo ./install-scanner.sh )

Hi AustinTexas

Thanks for your time but after entering sudo ./install-printer.sh I got the message "Command not found". I had managed to extract the file that created the uld folder previously. I'll try Rob's suggestion now.

Yes, that is what you get if you are not in the right folder.

Success! I went through the process Rob suggested, but in addition to AustinTexas's comments, I had to open as Administrator to gain root privileges. Also, the "sudo" command was not necessary. With the scanner, I went through the same process and used "./install-scanner.sh"
Thanks to both of you!
Paul

"Command not found" can also be caused by the sh files not executable
So type command "chmod +x *.sh" to make them executable.
