Did you already try via MCC -> hardware -> printers -> add printer ?

Well, e.g. http://www.openprinting.org/printers does not even list an M2070. Are you sure that is the correct model name? From what I've seen it is called Samsung Xpress SL-M2070, no?
See https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/sear ... word=m2070

From what I can tell, Samsung's printer support has moved to HP. You can grab the ULD driver there:
https://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/se ... s/16450377

You could also try out the free splix driver, which is contained in the package cups-drivers-splix, although I can't find a definitive listing anywhere if it works with your model or not.

yes, it is Samsung Xpress M2070 with NFC and Wifi
Would be good to have a list of supported printers on the Mageia website before purchasing printer

Sure, feel free to submit and maintain such a list.

Maybe it's better to simply ask before buying a new printer if that one is supported or not? Or at least check the linux support of the vendor beforehand ...
