# Samsung CLP-315W on NetBSD

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 a HTTP
daemon from which all standard configuration options are available.
Also IEEE i802.11 worked with a NetBSD router. But unfortunately, a local
host is still required as the printer only speaks a non-standard format

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]( For installation, first fetch the

> $ mkdir /tmp/foo && cd /tmp/foo
> $ ftp

and then compile

> $ gmake

I organized everything under /usr/local.

> chown root:wheel /usr/local/bin/foo*
> chmod 0555 /usr/local/bin/foo*

> chown root:wheel /usr/local/share/*
> chmod 0444 /usr/local/share/samsung*
