Samsung SCX-4200 Printer

You can also try installing the Windows drivers in Wine, and try to print a test page with it. A more reliable way for me is using VirtualBox (with Windows XP) if you cannot get that printer / scanner working under Linux natively. The scanner probably will not work natively under Linux, as my Canon Pixma MX410 (Good Cheap $70 All-In-One) doesn't work with scanning, but printing works beautifully. It might be worth the shot to try a program called Simple Scan and see if it recognizes that Samsung Scanner. Hope it goes well.


Mr Plod:
I'll look into the scanner at some time in the future. The main thing was to get my Printer working.

Once Again
Thank You


There is a slightly outdated thread for this on ubuntu (which is the base for LL) http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=341621 which points to http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ But reading the thread will give you exactly what you want I believe. It's very hard to find exact instructions not owning the actual hardware.

Mr Plod:
Thank You Mr ShaggyDope!
Not that it matters too much... but, just out of interest is the same thing available for the scanner?

The driver is available in the repos open a terminal and type:

--- Code: ---sudo apt-get install printer-driver-splix
--- End code ---
