Samsung CLP-315 [PCLinuxOS; solved]
Posted by: frazelle09 ()

i'm currently running PCLinuxOS 2009, fully updated. i have the printer installed and it's printing pretty well but i can't figure out why most of the time it prints the color photos so dark.

i was reading this page... http://foo2qpdl.rkkda.com/ and see that my printer is currently using the foo2qpdl driver but also see that there is another driver, the foo2zjs and am wondering if i should use it instead in order to correct the color problem.

Should i use the foo2zjs or the one i'm currently using? Any help would be appreciated. It seems that you are doing a tremendous amount of work on these drivers. i hope to be able to contribute to your work.

Have a great evening! :)

foo2qpdl is right. Did you do:

$ make
$ ./getweb 315 #Important
# make install

???

Otherwise, read the INSTALL file "CUSTOM ICC/ICM COLOR PRINTER PROFILE".

Thank you very much, Rickrich.

i finally located the command to download the driver but it didn't work, so i just used the URL that it pointed to. i then d/l the tar file and extracted the only file it had: samclp315-argyll-0.icm. i wasn't sure where to place it, so i used the /usr/share/foo2qpdl/icm folder and copied it there. There wasn't anything previously in that folder.

Does the above proceedure look correct?

Have a great afternoon! :)

O.k. Rick, you got me. i'm trying the whole process.

i got as far as make. Here is the output...

Quote

[frazelle09@LaGrandota foo2zjs]$ make

i don't think i should proceed until it "makes" correctly. i appreciate your SWIFT ! reply!

Have a great afternoon! :)

No idea. PCLinuxOS 2009 is unsupported. Use a supported version like Fedora.

Very good Rick! Thank you very much. D/l and installed glibc-headers and then ran make again.

Uf! Worked great! Restarted cups.

Now installing printer again -- the good part. Then testing.

Have a wonderful afternoon! :)

Thanks, Rick. Everything went very smooth this time. i finally checked to see what version of GS we're running and...

its 8.64. Sigh. i've posted a query on the PCLinuxOS forum in order to see if the new one is coming soon through Synaptic or if they think i can d/l and install it without wreaking havoc on the OS. No wonder the before and after test photo was the same - duh.

Again, thanks a million Rick and if we ever get this thing going i'll drop one last line.

Have a great afternoon! :)
