Yeah, it is still odd to set up. My Samsung is a mono laser-jet (ML2955DW) model, but I have to use the Samsung ML-2552W Cups driver for decent printing. And most often, I have to reload (from the network) my printer to my F16 notebook.
The included drivers and the Printing
program with F16 works OK, and gives good prints, just a hassle to configure (and periodically) reload the printer from the network to my F16 notebook. Not sure what is up with the reload issue, as it does the same (need to reload printer from network) with my legacy eMac. Even with the Samsung program installed on the Mac, I still have the reload issue. Have not had time to track down this buggy printer behavior in my network, but my suspicion is something is going on with the printer entering sleep mode and machines sleeping or disconnecting from my network is causing the reload
Once you do find the right driver (I have luck with CUPS + Gutenprint
drivers), F16 works as well as any other machine (Linux, Mac, Windows) on my network with printing.
