Hi Mercedes

Nope, is the quick answer, however, there is a linux driver & console available for linux :-

Here

Then, if need be, cups [I believe printers need to be set as postscript print device]

HTH

Aitch,

The question was asked because I was thinking of purchasing one as the ML-2010 has been superseded. The ML-2510 mentioned in another post sounds very nice but I cannot seem to locate them here in Oz.

As a matter of interest I followed your link and was gob-smacked at the size of the files: 27MB and about 67MB respectively! What exactly is the second file i.e. not the printer driver, and what does it do?

I hope they come on the CD.

I've no idea, other than earn some poor programmers a few bob

I mean poor in the sense of bad rather than no money!

Let them learn Xbasic!

Or Assembler? Laughing

There seems to be a mentality of, - "well, there's loadsa ram....."

I have one running on a Vista box. Embarassed
It works OK, but a rather alarming feature is the fact that the pages appear to be smoking when they come out. Shocked
But I have to say, it's been in serious, daily use for two years and has never put a foot wrong.

Well after a lot of head scratching and perserverance I can say that this printer works in 3.01. So far I have only printed the test page and two document files.

My method was to use the provided CD which seemed to only load the drivers to the /usr/share/cups/model directory.

Based on the suggestion of muggins in the Samsung ML2010 printer post I then used the CUPS Printer Wizard to actually install the driver.

Thank you muggins.
