Sub_title: I added the driver manually
 

This is how I added my Samsung CLP-510 laser printer. I got these directions from this Linux Printing.org page
This gives more instruction on which folders to look in.

Get the Samsung CLP driver from here

Copy mfp to: /usr/lib/cups/backend/
Copy all the samsung filters to: /usr/lib/cups/filter
Copy libmfp.so.1.0.1 to: /usr/lib
and the Samsung ppd to: /usr/share/cups/model/

It works, however, duplex mode does not work (it does in SuSE), even when set from within Cups. I had tried setting it both ways, from Abiword and Cups but like I said, it made no difference.

It's quite possible that I might have missed a necessary file, I don't know.

update:
I got the duplex mode to work. There was another ppd file that I had on my SuSE system so I just copied that one over to Puppy also. I don't remember where I got the original from, maybe from the Samsung install disk. So, the 2 ppd's are named:
samsungCLP510.ppd and CLP-510splc.ppd.

I tried it out in AbiWord but the duplex mode still did not work. Then I tried it out in another word processor, Leafpad, and that one worked beautifully!
