Mac Drivers For Samsung Printers


Universal Print Driver is compatible with samsung printer or multi-function printers (MFP) that use the PCL6 or PostScript languages, which means that different devices from different manufacturers can be accessed under one driver. Samsung Universal Print Driver is also compatible with macOS 11.0 or big sur, and Windows.

I'm surprised you actually managed to find one - that thing's ancient! The last supported version of MacOS (more accurately Mac OSX) was Lion (10.7), which was released 10.5 years ago. Samsung's printer division was acquired by HP in September 2016, and it promptly discontinued support for all Samsung-badged printers (most of which were obsolete by that point, anyway).

Are there any alternative Mac drivers for Samsung printersI've got an old (2003) Samsung ML-1510. The only Mac driver available requires Rosetta (PPC emulation) to get installed.According to various news sites, Mac OS 10.7 will drop Rosetta. So I'm looking for alternative drivers. I checked Gutenprint but the ML-1510 isn't in the list of supported printers.

An alternative would be to set up some kind of print server using older, but fully compatible software. You could do it as a VM or use an old computer. That said, the modern versions of Samsung's printers that compete with your model are fairly inexpensive too. But you're probably like me, unwilling to throw out hardware that's otherwise completely functional for your needs.

If you navigate to the printer's website (it's an HP website nowadays, because at the time HP bought the whole Samsung printers division) you'll find that the latest available driver is for Mac 10.15. We are - at the moment of this blog post - at Mac 12.4!

Also, if a printer is set up twice with different drivers it doesn't work with any of them. So you should only have one printer in Settings > Printers (per each device). You can have both driver packs installed on your system, though.

Currently, not all printers have drivers suitable for use with macOS Monterey due to the operating system being new. However, most printer manufacturers have compiled some information on printers with driver support.

Please note: Apple no longer provides support for printer driver updates through Apple Software Update (ASU) for most printer manufacturers anymore. You will either find these drivers directly from the printer manufacturers websites or use the Apple AirPrint feature if available on your printer.

macOS Monterey is incompatible with any 32-bit applications. Anything designed for this now would be 64-bit.If you could let me know which printer model you have I could check the drivers for you. Alternatively, it should be compatible via Apple Airprint.

There are many possible drivers for Canon printers. Many Canon printers are supported by Gutenprint and foomatic-db-ppds. Some of Canon's LBP, iR, and MF printers use a driver supporting the UFR II/UFR II LT/LIPSLX protocols, #UFRII . Others use the #CARPS, or #cnijfilter (cnijfilter2AUR / cnijfilter2-binAUR), or Canon CAPT drivers.

Many LBP, iR, and MF printers use a protocol that has had several names over the years: UFR II, UFR II LT, LIPSLX. There are multiple packages for these printers in AUR, and at least the imageCLASS MF4570dn and i-sensys MF633C are reported to only work with the older v3.70 version.

Some of Canon's printers use Canon's proprietary CARPS (Canon Advanced Raster Printing System) driver.Rainbow Software have managed to reverse engineer the CARPS data format and have successfully created a CARPS CUPS driver, which is available as carps-cups-gitAUR.The project's GitHub page includes a list of working printers.

Some of the PPD files in epson-inkjet-printer-escpr2AUR are missing paper size definitions for media that is supported by the printers and the filter. It is relatively straightforward to add the missing media types to the PPD files.

hplip provides drivers for HP DeskJet, OfficeJet, Photosmart, Business Inkjet, and some LaserJet printers, and also prov
