 # Samsung CLP-315W on NetBSD  # Samsung CLP-315W on NetBSD
 Samsung CLP-315W is a low-end color laser printer. It works on NetBSD.  Samsung
   is a low-end color laser printer, featuring USB, Ethernet, and wireless
   access. It works on NetBSD. A brief HOWTO follows.
   For initial configuration, I used a NetBSD host and standard [[!template
   id=man name="dhcpd" section="8"]].  The printer provides its own HTTP server
   from which all standard configuration options are available.  Also IEEE
   802.11 worked with a NetBSD router.  But unfortunately, a local host is
   still required as the printer only speaks a non-standard format language.
   The so-called
   is a prerequisite. This is available from [[!template id=man name="pkgsrc"
           # cd /usr/pkgsrc/foomatic-filters
           # make install package clean
   Samsung uses a special QPDL wire protocol, supported by
   [foo2qpdl](http://foo2qpdl.rkkda.com/). For installation, fetch the
   sources and compile:
           $ cd /tmp
           $ ftp http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/foo2zjs.tar.gz
           # tar xvfz foo2zjs.tar.gz
           $ cd foo2zjs
           $ gmake
   If you have problems with the compilation, check the `Makefile` for odd
   `CFLAGS` possibly not yet supported by the NetBSD's [[!template id=man
   name="cc" section="1"]].  After having the sources successfully compiled,
   the required files were organized to `/usr/local`. From the compiled
   sources only the following are required:
           # mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
           # cp foo2qpdl /usr/local/bin
           # cp foo2qpdl-wrapper /usr/local/bin
           # cp foo2zjs /usr/local/bin
           # cp foo2zjs-pstops /usr/local/bin
   Note the permissions:
           # chown root:wheel /usr/local/bin/foo*
           # chmod 0555 /usr/local/bin/foo*
   I used the following as the [PostScript printer
   (PPD) file. In order to avoid wasting the color toner cartridges, two
   separate files for monochrome and color setup were used:
           # mkdir -p /usr/local/share
           # cd /tmp/foo2zjs/PPD
           # cp Samsung-CLP-310.ppd /usr/local/share/samsung-mono.ppd
           # cp Samsung-CLP-310.ppd /usr/local/share/samsung-color.ppd
           # chown root:wheel /usr/local/share/*
           # chmod 0444 /usr/local/share/samsung*
   By default, the used PPD file does not use colors. This was solved by
   editing the `samsung-color.ppd` file:
           # diff -ur Samsung-CLP-310.ppd /usr/local/share/samsung-color.ppd

   The following network setup was used: one host named `print.lan` was
   dedicated to forward the printing requests to the printer or `printer.lan`. 
   This way all hosts inside the LAN can easily use the printer. Two entries
   were required for the [[!template id=man name="printcap" section="5"]] file:
           # Color (default; just 'lpr').
           # Monochrome ('lpr -P lpm').  
   The clients can access the `print.lan` host by using:
           # We have a CNAME record for the printer host inside LAN.

   Finally, enable [[!template id=man name="lpd" section="8"]] in
   [[!template id=man name="rc.conf" section="5"]]:
           lpd_flags="-r -n 2"
   The output quality is relatively good. There are no visible differences
   compared to the output with Windows and Samsung's own drivers.
