Hi Anwar,

Don't have a Samsung printer, but this might help

Check that you have this package installed : printer-driver-splix

Support for printing to SPL2- and SPLc-based printers. These are most
of the cheaper Samsung laser printers which do not understand standard
languages like PostScript or PCL. Both monochrome (ML-15xx, ML-16xx,
ML-17xx, ML-2xxx) and color (CLP-5xx, CLP-6xx) models are supported.
Also some rebranded Samsungs like the Xerox Phaser 6100 work with this

Note that older SPL1-based models (ML-12xx, ML-14xx) do not work. Use
these printers with the older "gdi" driver which is built into

Hope this helps

I am stuck.Since I upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04 I cannot seem to get the printer drivers properly installed.
I used this method on 12.04

This is the error message after adding the ppd file for my printer:-
"Printer 'Samsung-ML-1670-Series' requires the '/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosplc'

Thanks and Regards
Anwar Arnold
