[SOLVED] Driver for SAMSUNG SCX-4521F

[SOLVED] Driver for SAMSUNG SCX-4521F

Postby BrentRogers » Apr 23rd, '20, 04:49

I have a SAMSUNG SCX-4521F Laser printer.
When installed as a Parallel port printer on my Mageia 7.1 desktop, I was able to find the SCX-4521F driver.
However when I try to install as a Network printer on my Mageia 7.1 laptop. I cannot seem to find the driver.

Where Can i find this driver?
Any way to export the driver from my desktop machine to my laptop machine?

I might be mistaken, but for a network printer you don't need an actual driver, as the print job is forwarded to the remote CUPS server.
FWIW, the related PPD file is located below /usr/share/foomatic/db/source/PPD/Samsung and contained in the package foomatic-db if that's what you're asking for.

Thank you
I was trying to "Add Printer" from MCC.
It turns out that I did not really need to.
If I print from LibreOffice, the Samsung printer is available right there.
