I have a Samsung CLP-315 printer.
It is recognized by CUPS, but apparently ClearOS is missing the right drivers for it.
In the "Model/Driver for CLP-315" page i do not see any CLP-### printer.

What should I install?

Recommended drivers are SpliX and foo2qpd.

I tried using the advised "rastertosamsungsplc" PPD taken from Samsung's UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz, but I wasn't able to make it work (CLP-315 (Default Printer) "Environment variable PPD undefined or empty, execution aborted.")

Please help because I'm quite new to ClearOS and I'm a bit lost.

Thanks in Advance

    You could check google. I believe it is a pretty standard error. Here is one reference.

    Hi,
    I got partial success.
    I managed to install the printer and to print a valid test page from server.
    I can also see the printer both from Win7 and Linux (ubuntu 10.10), in the sense it is detected and installed correctly.
    Unfortunately it does not print.
    I see "Print file was not accepted (Unsupported format 'application/octet-stream'!)!" in client "Document Print Status" details page and docs don't show up in ClearOS CUPS job queue.

    What should I check?

    TiA

    Hi Mauro ,

    AFAIK you can do one of the following:
    [ul]Use a different printer.
    Makes no sense to mention this, but still ...[/ul][ul]Keep on searching for a compatible driver that is on the COS box.
    This can be time consuming, but it takes no brain power.[/ul][ul]Find the right driver and install it.
    For this you would have to get to know the Linux CLI.[/ul][ul]Compile the driver yourself.
    IMHO you would need to be an expert developer for this.[/ul][ul]This is the thread that helped me solve my CUPS issues:
    Trying to setup printer on ClearOS[/ul]
    I hope this points you in the right direction.
    Greetings,

    John
