 Nowadays, the best way to get a wide range of Samsung and Xerox laser printers working with CUPS is using the [Splix](http://splix.ap2c.org/) drivers. Since it's not in pkgsrc yet, you have to download and build it yourself.  Nowadays, the best way to get a wide range of Samsung and Xerox laser printers working with CUPS is using the [Splix](http://splix.ap2c.org/) drivers.

 To build the driver we need CUPS (print/cups) and GNU Make (devel/gmake) installed from pkgsrc. Also, we can optionally disable JBIG support or install wip/jbigkit to fulfill its dependencies.
