Can i somehow at least install a driver the printer can live with, and or establish a wireless connection, since it is capable of wireless printing??


ALSO i have one really strange question. When puppy was installed there were two boot sectors (i believe that is the proper terminology) I installed from one and then it appeared be corrupted and would boot puppy, So i went to the other and used it for a while. Then appeared to be corrupted. Finally i went to regular using the unbuntu.

Here's the weird part I tried the puppy a few weeks later, and it functioned just fine. Both boot sectors are now working AGAIN. Do they repair themselves or what?? Cool Question

Have you read the How-To here?. Your ML-1865W is not included in the base driver package, so you will also need to install the samsung_ml1865w_ppd-3.00.76.pet.

Regarding wireless connectivity - I have not tested a wireless Samsung model, but most wireless printers are auto-detected by CUPS. However, you may need to try Find New Printers several times before it is detected.

No rush. It's only been eight months.
