I also have this printer along with an epson for printing photos. The Samsung 
CD simply does not work. You need to download the driver system from their 
website and install it as indicated. It will be set up outside the debian 
system. However cups will find the printer & all works well. For the money it 
is great & really fast after the initial warmup. This printer will set up its 
own web faced printer management system & thats not a bad thing.
