Ubuntu – How to install the drivers for the Samsung printer

driversprintingsoftware installation

I have a Samsung CLP-325w printer. I downloaded the .tar.gz file from their website, but I can't seem to figure out how to install it.

Here's the link to the driver's tarball

I've been following this guide to install it, but I get stuck at the ./configure command. It says bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong? If I'm in the wrong folder, which folder is the correct one?

I should note that I was able to install the drivers via Ubuntu's generic drivers, but I'd really like to know how to do this for future and also to make sure I have the latest drivers.

Installing the driver

  1. Make sure that the machine is connected to your computer and powered on.

  3. Right-click the Unified Linux Driver package and extract the package.
  4. Open one Terminal and enter the following commands:

    cd PSU_1.10.tar.gz (the uncompressed folder)

    cd cdroot && cd Linux && cd psu

    sudo ./install.sh

  5. Then it'll ask the root password, enter it.

    Now you should see the following image:


  1. Click on Next to start the installation.
  2. When the installation is complete, click Finish.
