I am new to linux and just installed Zorin Core on an Acer Aspire x3950 with i3 540 @ 3.07GHz, 4GB memory, Intel HD graphics, 1TB HD. It is dual booted with Win10 64bit. Zorin has 350GB on the HD. I am trying to install a Samsung CLX 3305FW Multifunction Printer that is on my home network. Zorin installed this printer automatically during installation so that was great.
However, the printer functionality is limited and I have no scanning ability meaning SimpleScan does not see my printer.
I have tried installing another driver downloaded from HP for the Samsung printer into: Downloads/uld_V1.00.39_01.17.tar.gz and following the instructions https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.com/p/samsung-printers.html
that I originally followed from https://zoringroup.com/forum/5/8878/
It installs but I cannot find this “new” printer when adding new printer. Tried reinstalling and it says it is already there.
I have tried this https://tutorialforlinux.com/2018/03/26/ubuntu-18-04-samsung-printer-driver-install-guide/ but I have also run into other problems after running this:
sudo apt install suld-driver2-1.00.36
The error I get is it cannot install this because a dependancy is missing libusb-0.1-4.
I tried to install this but get the following error:
$ sudo apt-get install libusb-0.1-4
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Package libusb-0.1-4 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package ‘libusb-0.1-4’ has no installation candidate
So I am stuck. Any guidance anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
