    Hi there,

    just a question: Is the development stopped and the users have to use other drivers e.g. to support newser printers like the SAMSUNG CLP-310?

    AFAIK the project is merely sleeping. Splix should support any printer, like the CLP-310, that uses SPL or SPL-C as its printer language; does the 310 not work? If so, what errors are you experiencing?

    the error message is:
    CUPS 1.4.2 error message:
    "SpliX Cannot open CMS file /usr/share/cups/model/samsung/cms/CLP-300cms (2)"

    this above is soved by copying the content of the cms directory of the original samsung linux drivers to the newly  created cms subdirectory of my cups installation.

    But this falure resists. There is no error found in cups error_log:
    There is a page printing, but with following content:
    SPL-C ERROR - Please use the proper driver

    POSITION : 0x0 (0)

    SYSTEM : src/xl_image

    LINE : 606

    VERSION : SPL C 5.35 11-20 2007

    How are you installing the package and on what operating system?

    Aurelien does not have much time any more to work on the driver. Now I am looking through the user inquiries (forums, trackers) from time to time and add contributed patches and new printer models according to user reports. Note that I do not have any Samsung printer, so I have to trust the reporting users.

    Aurelien, could you give me admin access rights so that I can do releases and update the web site? Can you also tell me how to proceed for doing releases and updating the web site? This way it would be much easier for Linux distributions to keep up with the latest changes on SpliX.
