    1: ##  Using Samsung provided drivers 
    2: 
    3: It's not a great science as it almost works out-of-the-box. All you have to do is to download the driver from samsung web page and copy two files into specified directory of CUPS system. 
    4: 
    5: The steps are as following: 
    6: 
    7: 1. Download following file [Linux Driver for CUPS](http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=nl&CttFileID=1860607&CDCttType=DR&ModelType=N&ModelName=ML-1640/SEE&VPath=DR/200802/20080227113738171_UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz). 
    8: 
    9: 
   10: 2. Extract the `*tar.gz` file, `cd` to the directory `cdroot` and copy the following files: 
   11:     
   12: [[!template id=programlisting text="""   
   13:     cp Linux/i386/at_root/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungpcl /usr/pkg/libexec/cups/filter/
   14:     cp Linux/noarch/at_opt/share/ppd/ML-1640spl2.ppd  /usr/pkg/share/cups/model/
   15: """]]
   16: 
   17: 3. After that execute (or reboot the machine) `/etc/rc.d/cupds restart` and your **Samsung ML-1640** will work just out-of-the-box. 
   18: 
   19: Enjoy ! 
   20: 
   21: ##  Using a native driver 
   22: 
   23: 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. 
   24:     
   25: 
   26:     $ wget http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/splix/splix-2.0.0.tar.bz2 ;# or download from any sourceforge mirror
   27:     $ tar jxf splix-2.0.0.tar.bz2
   28:     $ cd splix-2.0.0
   29:     
   30: 
   31: 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. In this example, I'm about to disable it 
   32:     
   33:     
   34:     $ DISABLE_JBIG=1 gmake
   35:     $ su root -c 'gmake install'
   36:     
   37: 
   38: Now the driver is installed, along with the PPD files. You can add the desired printer(s) the usual way.
