PostPosted: Mon 03 Oct 2011, 12:36    Post subject: Got Samsung ML-1710 working!  

Thanks to rcrsn51!

Puppy version: 5.2.5 Lupu puppy running ona an Acer Aspire 7735Z-4613.

I downloaded samsung_printer-3.00.65.pet in this forum thread and CUPS managed to detect the correct printer model and produce a test page.

Prior to this, CUPS was only able to identify the printer model but there was no corresponding printer file available which matched the model. So CUPS could "see" the printer but was unable to print a test page. I would PRINT and go check on COMPLETED PRINT JOBS in CUPS which would show the completed jobs but nothing came out from the printer.

With the PET mentioned above, the printer works and I am able to print.

Very happy now!!!

Much gratitude to all.

Just out of curiosity, since CUPS didn't show you the correct model, how did you install the printer and run a test page? Did you pick something else?

Without the Samsung PET you provided, CUPS could see and identify the printer as an ML-1710. The specific driver file however was not available under the default Gutenberg drivers. So I picked the nearest possible model listed.

However, no further communication was possible. No test page would print, neither would anything print from an application. I knew at this point that CUPS was working since the print spool was working except that the printer was not receiving the data from the print spool.

After installing the SAMUNG PET you provided earlier in the thread, I was able to select the exact printer driver file (ML 1710) from the list of available drivers. After this CUPS worked flawlessly.

PostPosted: Thu 06 Oct 2011, 16:10    Post subject: Samsung CLP-325  

Hi,
I installed Samsung pet and the printer CLP-325, already working in a shared windows xp system, but the test page is incorrect.
The image is doubled, and with some white lines.
My system is puppy 5.1 and CUPS 1.4.3.

Thanks for any help.

First of all, I don't believe that the samsung_printer-3.00.65.pet lists a CLP-325. Did you install it as a 320-series?

Because this is a colour printer, it may need the CMS data files to work correctly. I have posted them here.

Try this first. If your printer still doesn't work, we can look at using the foo2xxx driver package instead. It may need upgrading to support a CLP-325.

Thanks for the reply, I installed the CMS package but still not working.
Using the driver foo2xxx (including foo2xxx icm-1.0) the printer work well only in black and white, with the colors does not work.
This is the error message:
usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip Failed
However, we took a step forward, at least I can print. Very Happy
Thanks.

Which version of foo2xxx are you using? I have posted a new one dated 2011-10-06 that lists your CLP-325.

I tested it in Lupu-528 with two printers from the foo2xxx group and could not get your error. I then did a simulated install of your CLP-325 and it appeared to work.

Usually, if a printer works in mono mode, switching to colour should not throw that kind of error message. In the CUPS settings, open the Adjustments section and select "No ICM Color Correction". See if that makes a difference.

I changed the setting NO ICM Color correction, but unfortunately with color printing, there are still problems. If I print the test page, the file is processed, but the printer does not print anything, cups does not display any error.
If I print a file from abiword, the error reappears "foomatic-rip failed".

The version of foo2xxx is the last that you posted.

If it can be useful, I can post the cups error log.

Please do. But first, open /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and change "Loglevel info" to "Loglevel debug". Then restart CUPS with the command "/etc/init.d/cups restart". Print something from Abiword.

The Samsung CLP models have always been an issue in Puppy because there are several packages that claim to support them and little reliable testing.

I have an OKI colour laser printer that uses a different filter from the foo2xxx package than your CLP-325. I cannot get it to throw your error message no matter what I try. But I notice in the foo2xxx change logs that there were problems with the CLP-325.

So I don't know if your problem has to do with your particular Puppy version, Samsung CLP's in general or your particular model.

We could try a variation of the official Samsung package again, but it only supports the "CLP-320 series", not the 325 specifically.

There is definitely an error and it refers to "/tmp permission denied". Check your permissions on the /tmp folder. Is it writable for everyone?

Code:
chmod 777 /tmp


I duplicated your setup, took the write permission off /tmp and got your error message!

What kind of Puppy install are you using?

Ok finally resolved! , right now with my puppy, I can also print in color.

You hit the problem. Very Happy

"/usr/bin/foo2qpdl-wrapper: line 541: /tmp/icc7524.usecie.ps: Permission denied
/usr/bin/foo2qpdl-wrapper: line 547: /tmp/icc7524.usecie.ps: Permission denied

/usr/bin/foo2qpdl-wrapper: line 566: /tmp/icc7524.selcrd.ps: Permission denied"

My installation is frugal, and I have no other operating systems in this old Pentium 3.
I do not remember having changed the permissions, the only thing I have done is added the user password, but I do not think that it is influential.

Thanks again, great job.

And thank you for taking the time to do the necessary trouble-shooting.

If you want, you can do one more test for me. Uninstall the ICM colour package, set the printer on "No Color Correction" and see if you still get colour output.

I uninstalled ICM color package, and the printer does the same with color prints. But doing this test I found that works well with Abiword, jpg files (with gimp) and even the test page is ok, but with some pdf files there are problems. I reinstalled ICM color package but the problems are still there, surely there before but only now I realized.
I can not print PDF files with color or images, it would seem that prints well only when the file is text only. Another detail that I noticed is that the options Wiewer Pdf (ver 0.1.7) I do not have the possibility to choose the color, but is available only to grayscale (only with the Samsung).
I tried to install FoxitReader, but as I open any pdf file goes in crash.

This is the error message that indicates Cups:
"/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstopdf failed"

In the log there are three works, a printed correctly (# 72) and two others with error, the printer produces a blank sheet.

One of the errors in the log refers to invalid fonts. This was a problem with printing PDF files in early versions of Lupu and was fixed. Try the attached patch.
