CUPS, Samsung ML-1440, and ghostscript - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi! I am wondering if there anybody can get Samsung ML-1440 work with CUPS.

Samsung gave driver for linux, but it require to replace ghostscript with their own ghostcript that was changed from GNU ghostscript (I think they change gdevqpdl.c) which tops at version 5.50. However CUPS require their own ghostscript as well (EPS ghostscript). Do you know how they can work together? I also tried the generic-gdi driver from Foomatic, but it didn't ...

    Default CUPS, Samsung ML-1440, and ghostscript

    Hi!

    I am wondering if there anybody can get Samsung ML-1440 work with CUPS.

    I tried the Samsung ML-1200 driver from Foomatic, the result is nice, but
    it always get the printer spit 2 extra pages before the printed one.

    Samsung gave driver for linux, but it require to replace ghostscript with
    their own ghostcript that was changed from GNU ghostscript (I think they
    change gdevqpdl.c) which tops at version 5.50. However CUPS require their
    own ghostscript as well (EPS ghostscript).

    Do you know how they can work together?

    I also tried the generic-gdi driver from Foomatic, but it didn't work.
    Maybe it need EPS ghostscript?

    Thank you!

    Try to get the source code from Samsung for their version of Ghostscript.
    They are required to provide it under GPL license. Then you can apply their
    changes to a modern version of Ghostscript.

    We have done this; ESP ghostscript includes a fixed-up version of the
    Samsung "SmartGDI" driver, or you can get the driver alone from

    It needs this Samsung "gdi" driver to be present in your Ghostscript
    installation. ESP gs has it, as do assorted vendor gs's, but
    apparently not the one you have.

    I use the ML-4500 driver for ML-1440 on Redhat 7.3 but with CUPs v1.1.20rc1.
    It seems to work quite nicely. However, it does spit 2 extra blank pages
    when printing from Netscape.
