Samsung Printer Driver Ml-1740 Mac Os X Install Update
There are some hard to find details so I thought I would put the details in the forum for all to access. I had earlier found the info about the Australian Samsung drivers via google hits pointing to the forums here, which was an essential find!
Thanks for the free mac tech support. Question On Jul 10, 7: I read in the forums here that it printed fine from OS X if you use the drivers available only from Samsung Australia- and it does just fine at this time. The Samsung is not a postscript printer, the Samsung drivers do the rendering on the local host CPU then dump to the printer.
The Belkin USB printserv says it's a lpr printserver. I think I'm stuck using this as a wired printer from OS X but would love to find a way to print to it from the network from my Macs. The Samsung ML is not listed as a supported model from the sourceforge gimp-print pages. Would this work for sure though? I don't see anyone in the forums posting about this type of setup. Could I make this work if I got a different printserver? The Belkin one is a little cheesy.

Please consider this when doing things you may feel unsure of. On Jul 10, 7: I can set up the IP printing, but when I chose the ML driver via the "other" printer drivr dialog, instead of staying set to ML it resets to "generic postscript" which won't work- this isn't a postscript printer. Print jobs sent to that IP as generic postscript, just vanish- no error, no output.
I would have expected raw postscript output It sounds like you understand the basic problem: Except for Brother, none of the non-postscript printer makers provide a driver that uses CUPS - therefore you get only the protocol they wrote into it - usually USB. I don't have a Samsung, but I believe your printer uses a print language called samsung-gdi.
Here's what I'd do: Install the Samsung-gdi package: For model choice, use ML because someone said that works for several newer models, and isn't in there yet. The linux-gdi drivers with the newer ESP drivers work super. I'm printing wirelessly from Everything I've tried has printed properly so far. I'm not sure I would have found those drivers, a lot of googling hadn't turned them up yet. I don't think this is covered there yet, and it's looking like a great little laser printer for a super price.
I used the same drivers from Samsung in Australia. Bonjour found it right off the bat. However the instructions with the driver said to use IP Printing, so that is how I set it all up. I can now print from either Mac platform or any of my three PC platforms. It doesn't seem to be finding the USB driver, and I don't know how to point it to the driver's folder.
