[SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

Hello to everyone and happy new year.

I am new in the forums and I need your help with this problem

My cousin gave me this printer (Samsung CLP-300) and I cant set it up properly.

I have tried so far 2 ways.

1) The cups-usblp package from aur with splix driver.  I entered device uri usb://Samsung/CLP-300 and I selected samsung-clp300.ppd from /usr/share/cups/model/samsung/clp300.ppd. Then I tried to print a test page but nothing happened.

2) I also tried the foo2qpdl driver and i followed the instructions in there site but again nothing.

any ideas? sorry for my english

Thanks in advance

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

I had the same problem in cups. It does not recognise the printer correctly after plug in. I solved it like this:
1. stop cups (sudo rc.d stop cupsd)
2. Add the following udev rule in the following new rule /etc/udev/rules.d/10-cups_device_link.rules

KERNEL=="lp[0-9]", SYMLINK+="%k", GROUP="lp"

3. unplug and re-plug the printer
4. ..wait a few and then start cups again (sudo rc.d start cupsd)

After that I had the printer recognised by cups in the webinterface and is selectable directly.
I have not tried the drivers you quote or the samsung package, but used HP colour laserjet emulation in cups for now. Yet it prints.

@ Awebb

I tried your advice, but now the printer prints blank pages without stopping.

@Strike0

I created the rule and now I get this error in cups interface. "SpliX Cannot get input slot information."

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

Hm, there seems to be an open bug with the splix driver
Perhaps uninstall it and try again with the HP PCL driver 6  or the foo2qpdl which you have installed also first.

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

Try a reboot first with the printer plugged in, if you have not done that since you added the udev rule.
Processing forever means what? In the cups queue or does the printer just takes long? It should start blinking lights fairly quickly after the job is in the queue.

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

nothing even after the reboot.

I even searced into the cups logs but nothing suspicious.

With processing forever, I mean the print jobs in the cups queue.

You have to be clearer, sorry. So the print jobs stay in the queue forever, but the printer does not get data (indicated by the LEDs)? What happens if you print a testpage from cups? Does it get printed or not?

Maybe you want to try with that HP driver pre-installed in cups. That combination works here. Also maybe delete those printer setup trials in cups that did not work via the webinterface.

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

Finally it worked!! big_smile

I uninstalled everything and I installed only cups with usblp blacklisted. Then I installed the printer via the web interface and I selected the HP PCL driver 6 you suggested.

Everything works great now.

Thank you very much for your help Strike0

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

Hey, great job! And you are welcome of course.
Please be so kind and put [solved] into the headline of your first post sometime. You can do that by editing your first post (tag in the right bottom next to "quote") That way it is a bit easier for everyone when searching for threads here in the forum.
Happy printing.

Re: [SOLVED] Cant get Samsung CLP-300 usb printer to work

In case you want to try out: I just saw in the cups interface that a Foomatic/pxlcolor and postscript drivers are also available now for the Samsung printer.

This worked for me too. It doesn't seem to be in the English version of the wiki.

Thanks for the awesome solution. I was trying to get my HP Laserjet 1300 to work, and although it'd print without the usblp module, it was very unreliable. CUPS 1.5.2 wouldn't detect the printer whenever I loaded usblp, but this custom UDEV rule got everything working again. Funny thing is, I never had a problem with any of this in CUPS 1.4.1!

Regards
