Samsung SCX-4824FN - can't communicate with the pc SOLVED

Postby sofokles5 on Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:04 pm

I was for more than 2 years a linux mint 11 user.
Despite a few minor problems my multifunction printer was working ok (either printing or scaning).

I decided to install linux mint 14 cinamon today.

Problem:
menu>preferences>printers
it auto detects my printer either through usb or ethernet cable.
Through usb, the scaner works fine.

But when i press print either it will print constantly 10ns of pages with written symbols on them, or it will show a message at top right, which is saying "printing is complete" and there has been no printing.
actually, the indication on the printer goes blue, which means that is has made contact with the pc, but it doesnt print.

I have to say that this printer model is widely used.

FIRST STEP:
DOWNLOAD FROM THE OFFICIAL SITE :
http://www.samsung.com/gr/support/model ... -downloads

THE LINUX PRINTER UTILITY which you will install first.
then the:
smart panel and install it.


SECOND STEP:
Using the Samsung Unified Linux Driver repository
This method installs the proprietary Samsung drives while avoiding all the problems associated with the manual installation and allowing you to retain control over exactly what gets installed. For full information, go the repository: http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/. The short version (meaning that if you run into problems, check the website before posting for assistance) to getting it up and running is:

1. Add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list, by editing the file as root (or using sudo, for example "sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list"), or by using Synaptic or other GUI to add a repository. (Be aware that this is a binary-only repository, although an empty source repository is provided to avoid occasional errors from configurations expecting it to exist.)
Code:
deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra
2. Install the GPG key for the repository. You can either (i) execute (as root or using sudo in a terminal):
Code:
wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
or (ii) download it (http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg) and add it to your keys via Synaptic, other GUI, or by (as root or using sudo, in a terminal):
Code:
apt-key add suldr.gpg
(If you skip this step, you will get warnings about installing unauthenticated packages.)

3. Refresh your repository listings (apt-get update or in a GUI), and then you should see the samsungmfp-* packages corresponding to the Samsung Unified Linux Driver.

THEN RESTART

THIRD STEP:

go to software manager

write:
samsung

there they will apear all the added files-software

choose universal printer driver

FOURTH STEP
GO TO MENU AND WRITE "SAMSUNG"

choose samsung driver configurator (not super user)
and follow the steps.

thats it.
