http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all I installed karmic koala beta a few months ago (erasing my jaunty version in the process but not my home partition!) and my printer continued to work flawlessly!(I suppose it took the jaunty settings and applied them to the new system, like my old modem details etc...). The problems arose when I updated to the final version of karmic last week. I also erased my home directory as part of my spring cleaning. The printer was recognised as Samsung cpl-310 (not 315) and all it printed was error messages. I followed a thread to download the latest unified samsung driver but the installation programme refuses to recognise that the printer is attached (I have unplugged and replugged it several times) and so the installation is not complete. I also followed threads for a programme which was supposed to solve colour issues. The result is that I now have a printer which will print in black and white but not colour! Any suggestions? Cheers):P (Hardware)
