Samsung printer on Linux – rastertosplc – No such file or directory

If you try to install Samsung printer (in my case ML1675) on Ubuntu 14.04 or Mint 17, you’ll may have some problems with missing file – rastertosplc.

If you added printer via web (http://localhost:631/) or via printer wizard, delete installed printer and follow the next instructions

Download drivers from this page: http://www.samsung.com/pk/support/model/ML-1675/XSG-downloads, extract them and install drivers with:

sudo ./install-printer.sh

(follow the wizard to complete process)

cd into /usr/lib/cups/filter and check the existence of rastertosplc file.

If this file doesn’t exist add symbolic link to /opt/smfp-common/printer/bin/rastertospl with

sudo ln -s /opt/smfp-common/printer/bin/rastertospl rastertosplc

after you should have something like

[email protected] /usr/lib/cups/filter $  ls -la ... lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     40 Aug 23 13:39 rastertospl -> /opt/smfp-common/printer/bin/rastertospl lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     40 Aug 23 13:51 rastertosplc -> /opt/smfp-common/printer/bin/rastertospl ...

The first file is probably created via install script while the second one is “fix” to “File “/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosplc” not available: No such file or directory” problem.

After you did this, add printer via wizard and try to print test page.
