 I organized everything under /usr/local.  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
   description](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PostScript_Printer_Description)
   (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').
           #
           lp|rp:\
                   :lp=:\
                   :rp=lp:\
                   :rm=printer.lan:\
                   :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:\
                   :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:\
                   :af=/usr/local/share/samsung-color.ppd:\
                   :if=/usr/pkg/bin/foomatic-rip:\
                   :mx#0:
   
           # Monochrome ('lpr -P lpm').  
           #
           lpm|rpm:\
                   :lp=:\
                   :rp=lp:\
                   :rm=printer.lan:\
                   :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:\
                   :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:\
                   :af=/usr/local/share/samsung-mono.ppd:\ 
                   :if=/usr/pkg/bin/foomatic-rip:\
                   :mx#0:
   
   Thus, for color and monochrome output, respectively, one needs only:
   
           lpr /etc/passwd
           lpr -P /etc/passwd
   
   Remote clients can access the `print.lan` host by using:
   
           # We have a CNAME record for the printer host inside LAN.
           #
           lp|rp|remote printer:\
                   :lp=:\
                   :rp=lp:\
                   :rm=print.lan:\
                   :sd=/var/spool/output/lpd:\
                   :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:
   
         chown root:wheel /usr/local/bin/foo*  Finally, enable [[!template id=man name="lpd" section="8"]] in
         chmod 0555 /usr/local/bin/foo*  [[!template id=man name="rc.conf" section="5"]]:
   
         chown root:wheel /usr/local/share/*          lpd=YES
         chmod 0444 /usr/local/share/samsung*          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.
