I have a Samsung CLP-325w printer. I downloaded the .tar.gz file from their website, but I can't seem to figure out how to install it.

Here's the link to the driver's tarball

I've been following this guide to install it, but I get stuck at the ./configure command. It says bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

What am I doing wrong? If I'm in the wrong folder, which folder is the correct one?

I should note that I was able to install the drivers via Ubuntu's generic drivers, but I'd really like to know how to do this for future and also to make sure I have the latest drivers.

Have you uncompressed the file? –  Lucio Aug 1 '12 at 17:33
Yes, it decompresses into a folder called "cdroot". That folder contains another folder called "Linux" which contains the folders "addressbook" "emailbook" "phonebook" and "psu" –  Ryan Moody Aug 1 '12 at 18:22

Installing the driver

  1. Make sure that the machine is connected to your computer and powered on.
  2. From the Samsung website, download the Unified Linux Driver package to your computer.
  3. Right-click the Unified Linux Driver package and extract the package.
  4. Open one Terminal and enter the following commands:

    cd PSU_1.10.tar.gz (the uncompressed folder)

    cd cdroot && cd Linux && cd psu

    sudo ./install.sh

  5. Then it'll ask the root password, enter it.

    Now you should see the following image:


  1. Click on Next to start the installation.
  2. When the installation is complete, click Finish.

Ah, thank you very much. So, I didn't need to perform the ./configure - make - make install commands? –  Ryan Moody Aug 1 '12 at 18:25
No, because it is already compiled. There is other software that you can or must compile(config. make, etc.). –  Lucio Aug 1 '12 at 18:37
what "SANE API" is this that must be installed? I installed everything I could see with SANE. –  Thufir May 13 '13 at 19:11
@Thufir I don't understand your question. What do you mean with SANE? –  Lucio May 16 '13 at 22:52
@Lucio not to hijack the question, but I have a problem installing this driver: askubuntu.com/questions/294965/… when I execute the install script, it warns that SANE isn't installed. I'm curious that there's no mention of SANE in the question or answer here. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scanner_Access_Now_Easy –  Thufir May 17 '13 at 5:47
