Inability to pass install-test and other issues (OS X 10.4.10)

Having bought a colour laser printer - the CLP-300N - which costs less than its consumables. I thought I would set it up to work with an Intel MacMini, with Ubuntu and Suse to follow on other architectures.

Install-test cannot find foomatic-rip. I am no wiser after reading the relevant scripts. On the Mac foomatic -rip goes in /usr/local/bin. I tried there and /usr/bin, with a symlink to /usr/libexec/cups/filter. No luck.

So I side-stepped install-test, ran the other install scripts, and ended up with an installation that could be configured via Mac Printer Setup.app .

This does not print. The Samsung OEM PPD does, when reintroduced and reconfigured. cupsd was restarted appropriately.

1. A suggestion about the foomatic-rip issue would help
2. Do I need to load firmware ? la HP printers?
3. If so, where do I find such firmware for the CLP-300 series?

Thank you to the torrent of people posting on this board. The make now installs if the directory structures and symlinks outlined in foomatic-rip are full replicated.

The PPD list an odd selection of gs versions. If I modify it, the machine may then actually print.

FWIW, there is no firmware upload ? la HP.

No printing. PPD gs version irrelevant. Fails with irrecoverable error -2

Have now installed on SuSe 10.2 with absolutely no difficulty. Works fine.

Pity about the Mac, and the lack of meaningful foomatic-rip error messages.
