I upgraded to 19.04 and cannot print on my samsung M2020 printer (network). I have tried to remove it from the list of installed printers for reinstall the driver but I can not do it. When I try to install the driver downloaded from hp (samsung) it says it's already installed. When I try to print system says additional drivers must be installed. How can I reinstall my printer? Thanks in advance

  • Samsung printers aren't HP. You probably need to reinstall the actual Samsung drivber. – user880592 Apr 28 '19 at 23:54

  • Please edit and post the link to the drivers you installed. – user880592 May 3 '19 at 23:01
  1. add new repository
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/ debian extra" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
wget http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/pool/debian/extra/su/suldr-keyring_2_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i suldr-keyring_2_all.deb
sudo apt update
  1. search your version
apt search suld-driver

(you cant find your version on this page by model number http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/supported.html )

  1. install your driver
sudo apt install suld-driver-**RIGHTVERSION**
sudo apt install suld-configurator-2-qt4

I have yet to debug that. In my case (ML-1675) the printer just prints some error from it's internal processor when I print either from Ubuntu 19.04 or Fedora 30. So I assume it's some upstream CUPS or system libs regression. At the same time I was able to print on that printer on freshly installed Ubuntu 18.04 in a VM. No problems there.


I've experienced the same problem with original drivers. What helped me is installing alternative drivers for M2020 from https://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/

Just follow installation steps on the bchemnet website. After install is complete add your printer by clicking "Add..." button in Settings -> Devices -> Printer. You should be able to print now! Hope it will help you :)
