My sister-in-law has a Samsung clx-3305fw printer which works fine across the local wireless network with windows.

I have downloaded the drivers from Samsung here:
http://www.samsung.com/au/support/model/CLX-3305FW/XSA

What is the best way to install these in Slacko-5656?
Is it as simple as running install.sh from the expanded package?

I don't want to break her machine before I disappear for 6 months.

Thanks

Hi Puppians

I've installed a Samsung ML-2165-W in Cups after installing samsung_print-4.01.17.pet. It is connected with a USB cable to a laptop. It prints well in portrait orientation but retains portrait printing when landscape orientation is selected.

The problem exists in X-Slacko 1.1 and in X-Precise 2.3 .

Thanks for your efforts and replies.

Gus

Have you read page 1? It has links to driver PETs that support the CLX-3300 series.

PostPosted: Sun 17 Aug 2014, 12:36    Post_subject: SCX-3405 monochrome multifunction  

I have the monochrome multifunction model SCX-3405 and I would like to print and scan from FatDog64 631 frugal install. Otherwise from Quirky Tahr 6.0.5 full install (it can only do full install). As a last resort, from Precise 5.7.1 frugal install.
Which dotpet, if any, do I need?
I looked for a product support page on the Samsung website, but couldn't find the exact model. Close enough, there's a support page for the SCX-3405W, which looks exactly like my model except for the addition of wireless support. Mine is a 2012 model, this one looks like it's a 2014.
http://www.samsung.com/ca/support/model/SCX-3405W/XAA-downloads
In there I found a Linux Printing & Scan Driver V1.00.27.04 released 2014.07.09 by the name ULD_V1.00.27.04.tar.gz.
The first post in this thread links dotpet samsung_print-uld.1.0.21.pet. The filenames are similar, possibly connected.
The same post also links samsung_scan_sam-uld.1.0.21.pet. Would I need both pets to print and scan?
This thread also references samsung_mono-4.00.35.pet but I couldn't find a download link - not that I know it would work for my case.
Thanks in advance.

The instructions in the main post are correct for your model.

Check the Fatdog Contributor Repo.

I have no experience with this one. You would have to contact its developer about printer support.

The beauty of Puppy is that you can do a temporary clean install using the "puppy pfix=ram" boot argument and test this yourself.

Thank you for your reply. I took the plunge on FatDog and was rewarded with a short, pleasant and ultra-easy experience that is founded on your excellent work and the FD developers'. Really all that was needed was:

  • Start the FD package manager, go to available packages, click Choose Repository, select the contrib repo, search for "samsung", and install the printer package.
  • Start FD control panel, in the System tab click CUPS Manage Printing, answer Yes when asked Need help with adding a printer. This opens a web browser and visits the FD printer support forum thread where rcrsn51 put clear and concise instructions for all printer makes in the first post.
  • Switch to the CUPS tab in the open browser and select Add Printers. Then just follow the steps (with the printer already connected and switched on).

The only anomaly was that CUPS did not report lack of paper in the printer. I printed a Test Page from CUPS. The printer lit the error led, but CUPS marked the job as fully completed. I can live with this issue, as my printer is just a couple of feet away from my PC.

Adding the built-in scanner was just as easy.

  • Install the scanner driver from the package manager, like in the first step above.
  • In the FD Menu click Graphic > XsAne image scanner. This open the Xsane front end. Click on USB (with the printer/scanner turned on AND paper sheets in the the printer feed tray). Xsane takes about 20 seconds to auto-detect the scanner and display a scanning GUI.
  • Just scan.

Thanks again for your help!
P.S. I plan on trying peasyscan as time permits. Xsane works fine but I prefer a simpler GUI.

Excellent.

Fatdog hides Peasyscan under Utility but keeps Xsane in Graphics along with its ancient orange Puppy intro screen.

Thanks rcrsn51. I've just noticed your post after 7 months away from my main computer. It's good to be home, for a little while anyway.

I downloaded the samsung_print-uld.1.0.21.pet as suggested by you. I'll let you know if it works.

Thanks
