    Thanks so much for putting this together; helped me immensely. BTW, that third link (gplgs-8.61-ub.dmg) is up a few versions, so people should visit the parent directory and find the latest..

    Same goes for the others when they, too, are inevitably updated.

    Hi Do you happen to know anything about the Samsung SCX5312 multifunction printers I am trying to connect my Mac to it over a network and not having much success. I am desperately searching everywhere to find and answer.

    Thanks, the instructions helped, my ml-1210 work with SL. However, the printer does not print quite properly – the first couple of lines of each page does not fit into the printing area. Does anyone know how can this issue be fixed?

    Hi, I have 10.6.3 and a Samsung ML-1710 printer. I followed the instructions above and was able to print, however the job doesn’t exit the print queue so I’m unable to make any additional prints. I have to either delete the job after it finishes and wait an hour for it to be deleted or I can delete and reinstall the printer. It’s getting to be a real annoyance.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks again.

    Thank you, thank you!!! I just upgraded to 10.6 and had no idea my printer wouldn’t work. It took me a few days to find you, but I do appreciate it!!!

    Thank you so much. I just upgraded to 10.6.4. and was dismayed when my printer didn’t work. I had forgotten about the headache I went through getting my Samsung ML-1710 printer to work in the first place, two and a half years ago.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This was easy and it is working like a charm.

    Much appreciated.

    I’ve managed to find all the files except for the foomatic-rip-2008-01-30.dmg. I a newer version that exhibits a problem with the top margin being too high. Once I find the correct file. I will post them up for everyone who needs to get one of the Samsung printers working.

    Whilst searching for the Foomatic-RIP. cam across this site…

    I’ve not tried it yet, and will attempt to see if I can make it work with my ML-1520, from my MacBookPro running Lion.
